Garrison Cemetery

British Garrison Cemetery was established in 1817 just after British captured Kandy and was closed in 1873 due to a ban on burials within the municipal limits. However, special provision was given to allow the burial of relatives of those already buried in the cemetery, with the last person to be buried there being Annie Fritz in 1951. The cemetery contains 195 graves of men, women and children. The most common causes of death were tropical diseases such as malaria and cholera.
