Yorkshire Regiment War Graves, -
Taunton (St. Mary's) Cemetery
Taunton (St. Mary's) Cemetery, contains 89 Commonwealth War Graves from both the First World and Second World Wars. 34 of the graves are First World War burials (curiously there are many more Second World War burials than First World War).
Amongst the burials is that of a Yorkshire Regiment Officer.
We are extremely grateful to Taunton Deane Cemeteries and Crematorium for providing the photos of the headstone and the cemetery, below.
