Yorkshire Regiment War Graves, -
Oxford (Rose Hill) Cemetery
Oxford (Rose Hill) Cemetery contains 28 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war and a further 58 of the 1939-1945 war.
The war graves are widely distributed throughout the burial ground, with half of the 1939-1945 burials being marked by permanent private memorials.
One soldier of the Yorkshire Regiment is buried in this cemetery.
