Heninel-Croisilles Road Cemetery, Heninel, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Feb 10, 2018

The 21st Division captured Heninel on 12 April 1917 and advanced eastwards on the two following days. The 33rd Division then took over the attack. These two divisions are largely represented in the cemetery. In April 1918 this ground was lost, and the eleven German graves in Plot I, Rows D and E, were made when the cemetery was in German hands. After the Armistice, graves were brought in from a wide area round Heninel. The cemetery now contains 307 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 104 of them unidentified. (Source: CWGC)
