In this view of the cemetery there seem to be a remarkable number of recent graves awaiting headstones.

Gainsborough General Cemetery is situated on Cox's Hill to the east of the town centre.

The Friends of the General Cemetery have played a large role in recent work to repair headstones and 'bring to life' the careers of servicemen buried here.
