All Saints, Bisham, Berkshire
A memorial plaque on the south wall of the chapel records the death in the Second World War of Berkeley Henry Vansittart Paget and his brother Guy Leo Paget, the last male heirs to the estate.

The Forli War Cemetery
The cemetery site was selected soon after the British Eighth Army took Forli in November 1944 and graves were brought into it from the surrounding battlefields. Many of those buried there lost their lives in the heavy fighting between Rimini and Ravenna which took place in appalling weather in October-December 1944.
