Hotton

Most of the British troops who died in the battle for the Ardennes are buried at the Hotton Cemetery, five kilometres north-east of Marche-en-Famenne on the N86. Hotton was the western limit of the German offensive in January 1945. There are 666 Commonwealth burials here, 21 of them unidentified. In common with all cemeteries tended by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the site is meticulously maintained, with colourful flower arrangements between the graves and an abundance of bees and butterflies in the summer months.
