Historical Information

Tul Karm was captured by the 60th (London) Division on 19 September 1918. It was then used as the site for No.15 Combined Clearing Hospital and the base for the 1st/1st Welsh Field Ambulance. An Egyptian Labour Corps Camp and Hospital came later.

The cemetery contains 83 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, only two of which are identified. There is also one German and seven Turkish burials.
