An interesting and very sad place. This new cemetery only completed in 2010 contains bodies from the battle of Fromelles recently found in a mass grave. Should be visited.

This is the newest Australian War Cemetery in France, built to shelter the graves of Australian soldiers exhumed from a mass grave near Fromelles. The visitors' centre is interesting and well set out, but the real story is in the lines of white headstones. In...More

We almost drove past this place on our way back from visiting the VC Corver Cemetery and the Fromelles Memorial. I'm so glad we found it. The cemetery is right on the edge of the village of Fromelles and anyone doing the tour of the...More
