Borgerhout cemetery (Silsburg) is located along the Herentalse Baan in Deurne. The park of honor for the heroes of the First World War is immediately to the right of the entrance. The park contains 54 tombstones of military victims of the First World War. One of them is an unknown soldier. As in Berchem, the majority of those victims buried in Borgerhout died at the siege of Antwerp in September/October 1914.


The municipality of Borgerhout also opted for a tombstone of its own design.
