Hollybrook Cemetery was built on land purchased from the Hollybrook House estate in 1902 and was opened in 1913. The memorial (image 1) in the cemetery was erected by the Imperial War Graves Commission to record the names of officers and men from Empire forces who fell in the Great War and whose graves are not known. It is especially dedicated to those who went down in transport ships sunk in home waters. The total number of names on the memorial is 1853. The arched cemetery entrance gate (image 2) and piers are Grade II listed.
