This suburb west of Zwolle was an independent community until 1967, named 'Zwollerkerspel'. In that year it was enclosed into the city of Zwolle. The Commonwealth War Grave Commission still has listed this cemetery under its old name. Washed ashore airmen were not buried here, but in Kampen, a city between here and the sea.
