With Professor Tim Grady- Almost 7,000 Germans – military and civilians – were laid to rest in Britain during the two World Wars. The British initially buried these dead in cemeteries scattered throughout the country, including in Chester. However, in the 1960s, the vast majority of bodies were reinterred in a new German cemetery in Staffordshire. This talks explores the changing place of the German war dead, tracing how their presence gradually faded from local memory.
