The land for the military cemetery was originally set apart during 1917 by agreement between the Secretary of State for War and the Necropolis Company and was confirmed in 1921. The cemetery contains graves and memorials from both World Wars One and Two and includes burials from Commonwealth countries and the United State of America. It also includes a number of German and Italian former prisoners of war.

In 1968 27 bodies from the Muslim Military Cemetery in Horsell were reinterred in Brookwood Military Cemetery

Brookwood is a village in the Woking district of Surrey.
