Montbrehain village was taken on the 3rd October, 1918, by three battalions of the Sherwood Foresters of the 46th Division, but it could not be held at the time; it was finally captured by the 21st and 24th Australian Infantry Battalions two days later.

This cemetery contains the graves of 89 casualties of the First World War, nine of which are unidentified.

The cemetery was designed by W H Cowlishaw.
