IMTARFA MILITARY CEMETERY

Triq Buqana, Mtarfa, Malta

Imtarfa Military Cemetery

This beautiful site has over 1,400 civilian and military graves all cared for by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  Amongst the many beautiful private memorials are 253 graves of casualties from the First and Second World War.  The Commonwealth burials are marked by flat headstones bearing many names due to the shallow earth and hard rock in Malta.

On some of the headstones here you will see visible bullet damage due to the cemetery being in close proximity to a nearby RAF airfield that was subject to heavy bombing throughout the Second World War.  These graves are a visible reminder of Malta’s suffering and resilience during this time.

Amongst many others buried here are six members of the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s delegation who were killed in a plane crash whilst heading for the 1945 Yalta Conference in Crimea.  These vital talks between Churchill, US President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Russia’s Premier Joesph Stalin shaped the future of Europe following the end of the war.
