From earliest times until the first Gulf War the British never took their fallen home.

Bayeux

They were always buried near to where they fell.

That is why there are sixteen British cemeteries in Normandy.

The British also bury their foe within their gardens of remembrance, and you will find many German fallen within the British cemeteries.
