|Casualties from||Second World War|
Estreboeuf is a village about 16 kilometres west-north-west of Abbeville and approximately 5 kilometres south of St Valery-sur-Somme. The Communal Cemetery is on the south-eastern side of the village on the road to Arrest.
The casualties who are buried here were members of the crews of three tanks knocked out in an action at Boismont, which adjoins Estreboeuf on the east, during the retreat to Dunkirk in May 1940. They were buried originally in a field at the scene of the action, but later the German occupation authorities permitted the people to Estreboeuf to transfer the remains to the local cemetery. Their graves are near the middle of the southern boundary.
