    Is there a cemetery in France with just Canadian graves?

    I think I remember hearing on a video about Vimy Ridge that at the end of the war, France ceded a plot to Canada for a cemetery, or something like that.

    I think there is but am not absolutely sure. There are a lot of graves for American soldiers and considering that Canadians were a major part of the beach landings I assume there is a Juno memorial somewhere. It would be worth checking out if you were going to visit Normandy.

    I think I remember hearing about annual ceremonies in France if I'm not mistaken, honouring the Canadian effort in some of the WW I battles in particular.

    I don't think so. Commonwealth soldiers were buried together on the same cemeteries. But perhaps you will find some information if you look on the website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. If you search on Google, you will find their website. They take care of all Commonwealth graves all over the world.

    Best Regards,
