Wytschaete (now Wijtschate) was taken by the Germans early in November 1914. It was recovered by Commonwealth forces during the Battle of Messines on 7 June 1917, but fell into German hands once more on 16 April 1918. The village was recovered for the last time on 28 September. Cabin Hill Cemetery was begun by the 11th Division in June 1917 and used as a front line cemetery until March 1918.


The cemetery contains 67 First World War burials. The cemetery was designed by N A Rew. Visitors should note a small grassed access path to this cemetery which is unsuitable for vehicles.
