Lest we Forget

Graven Stichting


Behind each memorial lies a unique, personal story and a personal drama. However, it also symbolizes freedom. Freedom for you and for us, paid for with the highest sacrifice imaginable. The ultimate proof that freedom cannot be taken for granted!

To keep the memory of our liberators alive, you can adopt one or more (groups/units) graves. You can also add information that you already have or that you found about the allied liberator(s) so everyone will know the unique personal stories.

The adopting party is expected to visit the adopted grave several times a year and to lay flowers on the grave on special occasions. The graves will be maintained by the CWGC (The Commonwealth War Graves Commission). Please observe the rules of the cemetery.

You can adopt a grave from €15 per grave per year and thus support the maintenance and increase of the data of the Gravenstichting Brabant.
