Zelobes Indian Cemetery, Lacouture

Historical Information (Source: CWGC)

The hamlet of Zelobes remained in British hands from the early days of the War until 11 April 1918, when it was captured by the Germans; it was evacuated by them on the following 30 August. The Cemetery was used by Field Ambulances at Zelobes from November 1914 to October 1915; and after the Armistice isolated graves (mainly of December 1914 from Givenchy), were concentrated into it.

 

There are now over 100, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, nearly a quarter are unidentified. The cemetery covers an area of 611 square metres and is enclosed by a rubble wall.
