    temptage I thought it would only take a few weeks......

    Does anybody know the location of Mook BRITISH Cemetery?

    Is it/was it the same location as Mook War Cemetery?

    One of my relatives was shot down in 1941, and originally buried in Venlo War Cemetery.

    But in 1947 his remains, along with all the other RAF casualties therein, were moved to Mook BRITISH Cemetery (2m SW of Nijmegen)(this Cemetery name is mentioned several times on his records), and then less than 2 months later, all the RAF casualties were moved again less than 7 miles to their final resting places at Jonkerbos War Cemetery.

    I have all of his plot numbers at the 3 Cemeteries but I just need to locate the whereabouts of the Cemetery in Mook.
