The Belgrade Cemetery is located in Belgium and predominantly contains burials from the Great War including 45 Canadians.


Namur was attacked by the Germans on 20 August 1914; the forts were destroyed by heavy artillery, and at midnight on 23-24 the garrison was evacuated. The town then remained in German hands until the end of the war.

Belgrade Cemetery contains 249 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, most of them dating from the ten months when casualty clearing stations were then posted to Namur after the Armistice. There is also one burial of the Second World War.


The city of Namur is located off the E42 motorway which runs between Liege and Namur. Belgrade Cemetery is located in the Chaussee De Waterloo in the commune of St Servais to the west of Namur.

From the E42 motorway turn off at Junction 12 onto the N4 in the direction of Namur. Follow the N4 into the town of Belgrade where the road is called Chaussee de Waterloo. The Cemetery is on the left of this road before the church and the railway.
