Bombardment memorial cairn

Manor Road cemetery was opened in 1872 as an enlargement of the earlier Dean Road cemetery. The path going between the retaining walls runs into an area known as the Secret Garden.

In the image below, on the right, is the new cairn built to commemorate those who lost their lives during the German bombardment of Scarborough on 16 December 1914.

Harry Frith’s grave being restored

Graves have been restored at the cemetery of people killed in the Scarborough raid.

The Friends of Dean and Manor Road Cemetery have found the graves of every bombardment victim.

The work was carried out to mark the centenary of the start of the conflict.
