Thiennes British Cemetery

Historical Information (Source: CWGC)

The German offensive of April 1918 pushed the front line back almost as far as St. Venant in this sector and this was one of the cemeteries made for Commonwealth burials arising from the fighting in the area. Thiennes British Cemetery was started by the 5th Division in May and used by the 59th and 61st Divisions before being closed in August 1918.

 

There are now 114 First World War burials in the cemetery. The cemetery was designed by W H Cowlishaw.
