Toronto Cemetery, Demuin, Somme, France

Toronto Cemetery in Demuin, Somme France is the location of burials from the First World War. Named for the Toronto Regiment (Canadian 3rd Battalion) in August 1918, Canadians who lost their life in service to their country are buried there.

To see more information about the Toronto Cemetery check First World War cemeteries and the War Graves Commission Site. Check also the Find a Grave Site. Many in this cemetery died on 8 August 1918. One of those buried in this cemetery is my Great Uncle.

To see a companion article go to Janet the Researcher with an article about Harold Edward Iles. See the temporary marker that was placed. These crosses have been replaced with the white stone with the maple leaf.
