Final Resting Place of German Zeppelin Crews Downed Over Britain

German Military Cemetery at Cannock, Staffordshire

Markers for the Four Separate Crews

I thought these pictures of the final resting place of the four crew members of the Zeppelins that bombed the UK in the 1st WW may be of interest . Their graves are in a German Military cemetery at Cannock, which is a town in Staffordshire U.K. The Plaque tell's the story in English and German making it easier for those who cannot speak or understand German ( which includes myself).
