There is only 1 First World War Commonwealth burial in the cemetery, which is located near the right hand side wall towards the centre of the cemetery (beside the 1914-1918 Memorial).
Soissons was under shell fire during almost the whole of the War, and was in German hands in September, 1914, and from the end of May to the beginning of August, 1918. It was later "adopted" by the City of Chester.
