Trafalgar Cemetery, Gibraltar

4.2
Tucked away in what used to be a defensive ditch during Spanish rule, Trafalgar Cemetery hosts an annual ceremony dedicated to the eponymous battle. Despite its name, this cemetery is the final resting place of mariners killed in other battles or by yellow fever. Only two graves hold the remains of lieutenants who took part in Lord Nelson's epic victory. Nelson's body was never interred here, but transferred back home to London. The monument commemorating his leadership in this historic battle was erected in 1992.

  • Somewhere you must go. There are graves there from those who succumbed to their injuries from the Battle. Worth a respectful, quiet, thoughtful visit.  more »

  • All the grave/tombstones that are ledgiable tell a story. It is vast pity that this place is full of litter. And the walkways are in need of a tidy up However the historical side of this cemetery, is excellent.
  • No, Nelson isn't buried here. But Trafalgar Cemetery still provides a fascinating glimpse into a backwater of British naval history, with commerative epithets that could only have been composed by Englishmen of that particular era, and of that particular military tradition. Squeezed into land bordered by busy roads, the cemetery provides a calm and cool meditative experience. Free to enter.
