U.S. ARMY CEMETERIES & BURIAL SITES IN HOLLAND

 
 

MARGRATEN

 

 

 

This Ninth U.S. Army military cemetery was opened on 10 November 1944 by the 611th Quartermaster Graves Registration Company. The cemetery is located near Margraten, Holland, seven miles east of Maastricht. At the end of hostilities in Europe, the remains of 17.738 Americans and 1.026 Allies had received a burial at this field of honor.

 

The cemetery site was selected as one of the permanent American WWII military cemeteries in Europe and in 1948 the cemetery was closed in order to carry out the repatriation program and for permanent burials.
