The village of Marloie, which is administered by the commune of Waha, is 2 kilometres south of Marche, astride the Marche-Rochefort-Bouillon road. The cemetery is about 364 metres north-east of the centre of the village in the Chemin de Malinchamps. The one Commonwealth war grave is some 30 metres down the central avenue of the cemetery on the right.
The British Expeditionary Force was involved in the later stages of the defence of Belgium following the German invasion in May 1940, and suffered many casualties in covering the withdrawal to Dunkirk. Commonwealth forces did not return until September 1944, but in the intervening years, many airmen were shot down or crashed in raids on strategic objectives in Belgium, or while returning from missions over Germany. Waha Communal Cemetery contains one burial of the Second World War.
