History Information

The cemetery was formerly called the Cimetiere Militaire de Moscou. The Commonwealth graves from the 1914-18 War were all brought in after the Armistice. Of these, over half from the 1914-18 War are unidentified. All fell on the 27th-29th May, 1918, in the Battle of the Aisne. In the north-eastern part is a plot containing the graves of two unknown British soldiers of the 1939-1945 War and 29 British graves of the 1914-1918 War.
