Deal Cemetery is a sprawling municipal cemetery containing war graves of both world wars. The 127 First World War burials are scattered throughout the cemetery grounds and many bear witness to the town's connections with the Royal Marines and the sea. Of the 54 Second World War graves, 38 form a small war graves plot in Plot C. The plot also contains the graves of three German airman and there is one Belgian war grave elsewhere in the cemetery.
