UK - Trafalgar Cemetery - Gibraltar

Trafalgar Cemetery - Gibraltar - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The Trafalgar Cemetery is located at the end of the main pedestrian street in Gibraltar. Although it is named for the Battle of Trafalgar only two victims of the battle are buried there. The remainder of the graves are mostly of those killed in other sea battles or casualties of the yellow fever epidemics that swept Gibraltar between 1804 and 1814. When visited in 2013 the cemetery was in a very poor condition.
