Next stop was the English cemetery at Ranville. There were a total 2151 graves, 323 of the graves were German and 5 for French soldiers. We were looking for the grave of lieutenant Dan Brotheridge who was the first killed allied soldier in the battle of Normandy. However, we couldn’t find his name in the register and that seemed very strange.
He turned out to be buried at the churchyard next to the English cemetery.
