Hastings Cemetery

Hastings CemeteryHastings Cemetery is located on the Ridge, the hill that forms the outer edge of the town. The cemetery was opened in 1856, and since then has been the final destination for most residents of Hastings and St Leonards.

A Commonwealth War Grave site for casualties of World War Two is located within the cemetery. It contains the grave markers of 76 service personnel, including six German air men and one German soldier.

In addition to the service personnel there are grave markers for the 152 civilians killed during bombing raids on Hastings and St Leonards.

One additional civilian style grave marker is labelled ‘Unknown’. This individual was lost at sea and was found on 4th September 1944.
