German Military Cemetery

Reviewed By Andy and Kath M - Nuneaton, United Kingdom

Driving past the Commonwealth Graves Commission site you come to the German Military Cemetery. Open from 10 o'clock it is a peaceful and thought provoking part of Cannock Chase. We strolled around the beautifully kept grounds and rested for a while on one of its many benches. The most poignant place for me were the four caskets containing the remains of the crew of zeppelins shot down during World War I.

Cannock Chase German War Cemetery

Reviewed By MalcH - Loughborough, United Kingdom

I do think it important to pay your respects to the young men that gave their lives no matter what country they come from. Easy parking and well maintained Gardens with rows of graves to those who fell. Part of the Cannock Chase area of natural beauty.

Another great evening at The POW last night! The Shadows tribute performance was outstanding for its presentation and performance. Four guys [including a stand-in drummer who did very well to keep it all together] added a few lesser-known Shadows tunes such as Blue Star and...MoreMany thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed the show & thank you for your continued support, see you next time!

Cannock Chase War Cemetery

Reviewed By Keith B - Stafford, UK

Although called the Commonwealth War Cemetery, this plot contains 97 Commonwealth burials of World War I, most of them New Zealanders, and 286 German burials. There are also three World War II burials.
During WWI there were two army camps, a prisoner-of-war camp and a 1,000-bed military hospital on Cannock Chase, and this cemetery served all four of them. Poignantly, many of the young men buried here died, not from battle injuries, but from Spanish Flu, which ravaged the world at that time.
The grounds are preserved immaculately.

We visited on an early Saturday morning for a birthday party. This is an ideal time as it is very quiet. The kids and a lot of the adult alike had a great time. I think an hour is an perfect time (especially for the adults)
Well worth a visit

Brilliant service at reception - between us, we needed to alter membership details, search through lost property (found it!), and buy some swimwear. Really helpful young lady (Lucie perhaps?) dealt with us very kindly and professionally. Exceptional customer service - thank you very much

I went here on Saturday night. It was busy with a good atmosphere drinks wasn't badly priced either the only downfall was that it took a while to get served but guess it was a Saturday. I always come here whenever I'm in Cannock and always enjoy it.
