The cemetery contains only a small percentage of those troops who perished while on duty in Barbados.
The site was originally dedicated to the men and families of British Forces, who died serving in Barbados between 1780 and 1906
In 1982 the Cross of Sacrifice was erected while the memorial building was restored in 1984. The site is still used as a burial ground for ex-service men and women, who served in the Commonwealth Armed Forces, and in the building provides information on the location of their headstones.
Two of the most visited memorials are the World War soldiers memorial for soldiers who perished in battle and were never found, the other is the memorial for Sir Errol Walton Barrow the first Prime Minister of Barbados and a pilot with the Royal Air Force.
The Barbados Military Cemetery is located in the Needhams Point area, just adjacent to the Hilton Barbados Hotel Resort.
