A century on from the British declaration of war in Germany in August 1914, we visit some of the graves of service personnel and civilians from the Great War.

Arnos Vale's Great War memorial was built in 1921 at Soldier's Corner to mark the graves of Great War casualties who died in Bristol's hospitals. The cemetery is the last resting place of servicemen from all over the world - as well as local people who lived through the war.

Warm clothing and sensible shoes are strongly recommended.
