This cemetery lies just over the road from the Ulster Tower on the road to Thiepval. Beautifully maintained and sitting in a lovely secluded location.

Just beside the road near thiepval wood. Tour guide from Ulster tower told us more bodies still being found( 3 I think when the road outside the centenary was being repaired). New graves still being put in. Like mill road a peaceful but sobering place.

If visiting the Thiepval Memorial, it is worth stopping here to pay respects. Well-maintained as you would expect a CWGC Cemetery to be.

Over 1200 men lay here at piece now, different when they fighting in the battle. It is a peaceful place.

Carefully laid out, utter peace, total beauty of the roses and other flowers that flourish around the standard size gravestones. I found the stone of a relative of a friend which made it more special. This cemetery is immaculate.

Beautiful layout. Helps to remind you of the sacrifices of the First World War. Try looking at the Commonwealth War Graves Web site for more information.
