There are now over 150, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this cemetery. A special memorial records the name of one United Kingdom soldier, buried in Bel-Aise Farm Cemetery, whose grave could not be found. The Cemetery covers an area of 506 square metres and is enclosed by a stone rubble wall.
