The site was once an American military cemetery in Belfast. It is located in Castlereagh Hills, opposite to Lagan College. The Lisnabreeny American Cemetery occupied a 10.5 acre site. After Belfast City Cemetery reached capacity, the new site opened in December 1943. Lisnabreeny was once the final resting place for a total of 148 men. Eight servicemen were unknown and laid in unmarked graves. 41 others were men reburied from Belfast City Cemetery between 23rd May and 1st June 1944. The cemetery closed in 1948, and the remains of those who were not repatriated to the US at their families' request now lie in Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, England.
