My great uncle is commemorated on the memorial wall at this cemetery. The cemetery looks as though it is on a raised dais. It is kept tidy by the CWGC. It is in a quiet areas and you can see the valley on both sides....More

As with all of the cemeteries of the First World War this is a thoughtful place to think about all of the people that died in this war. Magnificently kept by the CWGC.

A sobering experience that was well worth the visit off the beaten track. Rows of well maintained headstones mark the graves of British and allied soldiers who died on the western front in WWI, many of whom are unknown. This site is a great reminder...More
