Bilbao British Cemetery
Staff of the British Consulate in Bilbao



Bilbao is a seaport in the north of Spain. The British Cemetery is about 8 kilometres north-east of the town, on the road to Derio. If arriving by air, turn left on leaving the airport and continue for a short distance to Sondica village. On leaving Sondica village the cemetery, located within a small communal cemetery (there is a tiny church), will be found approximately 100 metres off the main road. The British Cemetery at Bilbao, contains the grave of a merchant seaman buried at first in the Town Cemetery at Ondarroa, on the coast of the same Province, and then in the old British Protestant Cemetery (created about 1775 and disaffected in 1929).
