Hinderwell Cemetery contains 14 Commonwealth War Graves from both World Wars. 8 of these graves are for soldiers of the First World War, including three who served with the Yorkshire Regiment. 6 of the graves are for service personnel of the Second World War, including one female.

The plot where two of the Yorkshire Regiment graves are located is in very poor condition, - completely overgrown and many graves broken and hidden.
