Historical Information

The cemetery was used by the Germans; but their graves have been removed, and the British soldiers buried by them in March, 1918, have been reburied in St. Souplet British Cemetery.

There are now over 10, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, a small number are unidentified. All fell in October, 1918.
