Yorkshire Regiment War Graves, -
Portsmouth (Milton) Cemetery
Portsmouth (Milton) Cemetery was opened in 1911, and contains 426 war graves
of both World Wars. The 194 First World War burials are mainly in Plot 1.
After the war a Cross of Sacrifice was erected on the northern side of the
chapel in honour of all the servicemen buried in the cemetery.
The Second World War burials are widely spread throughout the cemetery.
One soldier who served with the Yorkshire Regiment is buried in this cemetery. We are extremely grateful to Jeremy Davis of the Find A Grave website for photographing the headstone of this soldier.
