Bethleem Farm East Cemetery

History Information (Source: CWGC)

 

Bethleem Farm East Cemetery was made by Australian units when the nearby Bethleem Farm was captured by the 3rd Australian Division on 7 June 1917, in the Battle of Messines. The majority of the burials are those of officers and men killed in action on 8 or 10 June, though the cemetery continued to be used until the following September. There is also a West Cemetery nearby.

 

There are 44 servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in the cemetery. Eight of the burials are unidentified but a special memorial commemorates one casualty know to be buried among them. The cemetery was designed by G H Goldsmith.
