History of the Belgian honorary parks in civil cemeteries

 

 

The large garrison towns, Antwerpen, Brussel, Gent, Brugge, Mechelen, Namur and Liège, but also other municipalities, Anderlecht, Elsene, Jette and Schaarbeek had military hospitals, which gathered, after November 11, 1918 and after the dismantling of the field hospitals, the wounded and sick soldiers.

 

On the civil cemeteries of these cities are large military sections. For example, in Antwerpen, on Schoonselhof cemetery, more than 750 military and civilian victims of the First World War are buried. Some medium-sized cities and even villages established honorary parks for their fallen heroes.
