The cemetery was used during the Second World War mainly for the burial of those killed during the German advance of May 1940 and the withdrawal of the British Expeditionary Force to Dunkirk. In addition to over 140, 1939-45 war casualties graves, of which over 30 are unidentified, there are a small number of 1914-18 war graves in this site.  The turning for the cemetery is narrow and not easily seen.
