Known unto God

3 unknown men are buried in the Cemetery as a result of the fighting in the Arnhem-Oosterbeek area from 17th September 1944-26th September 1944.. They were all recovered from the Rhine.

Although all the graves are marked 25-09-1944, the bodies were recovered from the river on 15-11-1944. One of them is most likely a member of the 7th KOSB.
