Friends of the British Cemetery, Elvas

The British Cemetery at Elvas is one of the oldest British Military Cemeteries in existence. It holds only five known graves but two of these are the only marked graves of the thousands of British soldiers who fell at the battle of Albuera and another is the sole marked grave of the thousands who fell in the three sieges of Badajoz.

The Association of the Friends of the British Cemetery (Associação dos Amigos do Cemitério dos Ingleses em Elvas) was founded to undertake the maintenance of the British Cemetery, which contains memorials plaques to all the regiments that fought at Albuera and Badajoz.

The Friends of the British Cemetery provides for a caretaker and the Cemetery is open to the public. Their long-term aim is to produce a fund that will ensure the Cemetery's maintenance and protection in the future.
The Association is a UK registered charity, no.1109395.
