Arras, Monchy le Preux

Hi, I am planning a special trip for my father in law in May to visit the WW1 British war cemetary in Monchy le Preux to visit his grandfathers grave. Can anyone give me some recommended places to stay and advise if it is possible to get to Arras by train, if travelling to Lille on the Eurostar? Also, would appreciate any recommended guides to this war cemetary....

Thanks!

Yes there are trains to Arras from Lille.

This website gives some quite useful Arras information:

I have only 'passed through' Arras, so I can't recommend anywhere to stay, but it is a lovely town IMO so I hope you find somewhere good.

The War Graves Commission would be a good place to start as far as exploring your cemetary is concerned:

And this site should help with regard to the battlefields:
