Happy Valley was the name given to the long valley which ran eastward from Orange Hill, and along which Commonwealth troops fought their way on 10-11 April 1917 during the early stages of the Battle of Arras. The cemetery was begun by the 12th (Eastern) Division after the battle, and used again by the 4th Division in December 1917.
