Remembering those who fought in the Great War.

Lahana Military Cemetery

Historical Information

The cemetery was begun in July 1916 for burials from the 27th Casualty Clearing Station, to which sick and wounded men were brought from the Struma front. The cemetery was also used from June to August 1917 by the 18th Stationary Hospital.

After the Armistice, 41 of the graves in Plots II and III were brought in from the two front line cemeteries at Paprat (about 12 km north-west of Lahana) and from other small burial grounds.

The cemetery now contains 279 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. There are also 16 Bulgarian and four Greek war graves.
