Brandesburton churchyard is the last resting place of 13 German airmen? killed during the war.

I think you will find that all German war graves have been re interned at the German Military Cemetary at Cannock Chase. This was carried out around 1967 and holds some 5,000 German casualties of WW2.

re .the German air crew at Brandesburton, they are still buied there .
most of the Germans buried in East Yorkshire were dissinterred in December 1966 and their remains were taken to Cannock and some were even sent back to Germany if the families could afford the costs.
it would appear that the Air Crew in the church yard have been forgotten about or it was deceided to let them rest, I think they should stay were they are after all these years.
I was present at Bridlington when the remains of the German air crews [ who were shot down after they had .just bombed Driffield airfield ] were removed , it was a bit strange to witness this event.
the R.A.F man K.E. New , who was killed in the same raid is still buried in the same section as the Germans who killed him !
