Historical Information (Source: CWGC)

The cemetery, originally called CD 1, contains the graves of soldiers all of whom fell on the 9th April 1917, or on one of the four following days.

 

There are now over 100, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. The cemetery covers an area of 849 square metres and is enclosed by a rubble wall. The numerous groups of graves made about this time by the Canadian Corps Burial Officer were, as a rule, not named but serially lettered and numbered.

 

The cemetery is approximately 260 metres past Canadian Cemetery No.2 following the one-way system to rejoin the avenue leading back to the main road.
