Historical Information

Ecoust-St. Mein was captured by the 8th and 9th Devons in a blizzard on 2 April 1917, lost on 21 March 1918, and retaken at the end of the following August by the 3rd Division. The British Cemetery was then made, in continuation of a German Extension (now removed) of the communal cemetery.

The cemetery contains 151 burials of the First World War, eight of which are unidentified.

The cemetery was designed by W H Cowlishaw.
