There are many soldiers from the Great War buried in Sittingbourne Cemetery 31 to be exact. Some are local men who received wounds at the front and were brought home only to die of their wounds. Other men were from all corners of Britain & the Empire, who died either while stationed here or in the local hospitals set up during the War. The Flu epidemic also took its toll.
