Many of the men buried in Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery were members of the 3rd Canadian Division who died either on 6 June or during the early days of the advance towards Caen, when the Division engaged a German battle group formed from the 716th
Division and the 21st Panzer Division. The cemetery, designed by P.D. Hepworth, contains 2,048 Second World War burials, the majority Canadian, and 19 of them unidentified. Photo dated 2017.
