Historical Information

Estaimbourg Churchyard contains six Commonwealth burials of the First World War, three of which were due to a direct hit on nearby billets of the 23rd Lancashire Fusiliers in November 1918. The six Second World War burials (one of them unidentified) date from May 1940 and the withdrawal of the British Expenditionary Force ahead of the German advance.
