Bermuda’s Official Travel Resource


Bermuda’s Royal Naval Cemetery, known locally as “The Glade,” is the final resting place of more than 1,000 servicemen from the 19th and 20th centuries, including many from the yellow fever epidemic of the mid-19th century. The cemetery sits in a protected valley with rows of tiny headstones, plaques, marble obelisks and tombs. The earliest headstones date to 1819, while the most recent were servicemen who perished in battle with German battleships and U-boats during WWII. The Royal Naval Cemetery is ideal for a serene stroll – find it at the north side of Lagoon Park in Sandys Parish, about five minutes’ drive south of the Royal Naval Dockyard.
