Nederweert War Cemetery

Nederweert was liberated by British troops on 21st September, 1944. The front line until 14th November was close by, following the Zuidwillemsvaart and Wessem-Nederweert canals; during that period there were casualties from patrol activity and from daily German shelling of Nederweert, besides some deaths in German minefields. After the British crossed the canals and went on towards the Maas, burials continued in the war cemetery from the surrounding area. There are now over 350 1939-1945 War casualties commemorated in this site.
