Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery

Many of those buried in Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery were men of the 3rd Canadian Division who died either on 6 June landing at Juno beach, or during the early days of the advance towards Caen, when the Division engaged a German battle group formed from the 716th Division and the 21st Panzer Division.

The cemetery contains 2,048 Second World War burials, the majority Canadian, and 19 of them unidentified.
