Historical Information

The cemetery was made in March 1918 by the 7th, 20th and 43rd Casualty Clearing Stations, but when the German advance began at the end of that month, their place was taken by field ambulances of the units fighting on the Arras front, notably the 31st Division and the Canadian Corps. In August and September, when the Germans had been pushed back, the 45th and 46th Casualty Clearing Stations were posted to the neighbourhood.

Bac-du-Sud British Cemetery contains 688 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. There are also 55 German war graves.

The cemetery was designed by Charles Holden.
