Cheltenham cemetery contains burials of both wars. The 109 First World War graves are mainly of men who died in the local voluntary hospitals. The burials are scattered except for a small plot of 10 Australian graves. The Second World War burials number 71, half of them forming a war graves plot in the eastern part of the cemetery.

Amongst the graves for the First World War is that of Lieutenant Barnett, of the 6th Battalion Yorkshire Regiment. We are extremely grateful to Jimmy James, <jimmy@remembering.org.uk>. who has provided the photographs of Lieutenant Barnett's grave and further information on Lieutenant Barnett.
