Longis 'Russian Cemetery'

The 'Russian Cemetery' at Longis was the principal burial ground for foreign workers in Alderney, for which records were kept by the Organisation Todt (OT).

381 bodies were exhumed in 1961 by the German War Graves Commission, most of
whom were removed to the ossuary at Mont des Huisnes.

Some German death and burial certificates survive in connection with these exhumations, but the final number of deaths in Alderney will never be known and remains a continuing cause for speculation.
