A field of black metal crosses

This German military cemetery between Varennes and Romagne sous Montfaucon contains the graves of 1 131 German soldiers.

The Cemetery

Perhaps surprisingly, the crosses were produced in Belgium using data provided by the German Graves Commission.

Only one soldier for each cross in this section

It is unusual to see individual crosses for German war dead, and there are numerous here in Epinonville.

More frequently you will find four soldiers to each cross - one to each arm, each side.
