Bilbao British Cemetery

Bilbao British Cemetery is located in Sondika, in the province of Biscay, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country, northern Spain. The British cemetery was originally located on the coast of Biscay from about 1775, before being disaffected and relocated to its current position in 1929.

The Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery

The cemetery contains a Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery (maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission) with 58 casualties. These casualties include servicemen from Poland, as well as persons from the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations. Service personnel from both the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force are buried here. Most of the dead are from World War II.

Location

The cemetery can be found on the main round out of Sondika towards Derio. The cemetery is set back from the road and is now hidden by new housing. A Remembrance Day service is held every year.
