My Great Uncle was killed at Fromelles but because he was not reported as missing until a day later, his name as missing, presumed dead, was placed on the Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux. Once his remains were found at Pheasants Wood, his name was placed on a new plaque at VC Corner.

Five and a half thousand Australians were casualties at Fromelles on 19 July 1916 the worst day in Australian military history.
Some of the casualties with no known grave are listed here.

Missing with no head stones . missing but found on fields of Fromelles a sad but pretty cemetery to the Aussie boys lost. The town folk of Fromelles pay honor to the Fallen each Anzac day.

A stark reminder of the selflessness of heroes from the past. These brave men gave the ultimate sacrifice and they will always be remembered.

A deliberate interpretation from the good book but so apt for all cemeteries and monuments when I am near commemorations to the fallen who gave so much for this today - "Pass me not, Stranger, Hear my humble cry; While on to other monuments, Thou art calling, Do not pass me by, Refrain and stay a while,"
Staying a while in any, but in this wall of names, no graves, on a warm autumnal day, we can easily drive on by or not visit at all, but that is shameful to my soul when you consider their sacrifice. There's only names. Supposedly MIA, but perhaps their grave lost.
Pause a while regardless of the weather. Indeed the Menin gate and Plogsteert have more names, but this should be equally as powerful to everyone's soul.
Well worth a visit to reflect and give thanks, pay homage to these blokes doing their bit.
To end my apologies to the purist for the Brooke mis-quote as the original prose is applied to England referencing home. For these guys it was Australia.
there’s some corner of a foreign field that is for ever Australia

The VC Corner Australian Cemetery and Memorial is a Commonwealth War Graves Commission World War I cemetery and memorial located near Fromelles, about 2 kilometres northwest of the village on the D22C road (rue Delval). The cemetery contains 410 unidentified bodies of Australian soldiers retrieved from the battlefield after the Armistice, more than two years after the battle. There are no headstones in the cemetery, but two large concrete crosses laid face down in the grass mark where the soldiers are buried. Although the graves are not individually marked, these are individual graves, not a mass grave. The memorial lists almost 1,300 Australian soldiers who were lost in the battle and who have no known resting place.

This cemetery is in no mans’ land on the Fromelles battlefield. It commemorates the many Australian lost during the battle, and with no headstones it is different to many other cemeteries on the Western Front. However, it is no less moving. It is well maintained and a short walk from the Cobbers Statue. Looking back to the Cobbers Statue, you can see the Fromelles Church spire on the horizon.
Thanks for your vote.

Right in the middle of "No Man's Land" from the Battle of Fromelles July 1916 where my Grandfather was wounded. The poor buggers here were not as lucky and the Cemetery holds 410 unidentified fallen and on a screen wall the 1299 with no known grave are remembered. VC Corner is the only all Australian Cemetery and is also different as there are no headstones but the 410 are interred with a cross outline on the grass above. A very moving & special place and on our visit we watched the workers from the CWGC making sure the beauty of this site is never diminished !!
