Happy Valley British Cemetery, Fampoux, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jan 25, 2018

Happy Valley was the name given to the long valley which ran eastward from Orange Hill, and along which Commonwealth troops fought their way on 10-11 April 1917 during the early stages of the Battle of Arras. The cemetery was begun by the 12th (Eastern) Division after the battle, and used again by the 4th Division in December 1917. Happy Valley Cemetery contains 76 First World War burials and commemorations. Six of the burials are unidentified but there is a special memorial to a casualty known to be buried among them.
