Sunken Road Cemetery, Boisleux-St. Marc, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jul 5, 2018

Boisleux-St. Marc was occupied by Commonwealth troops in March 1917 following the German withdrawal to the Hindenburg Line. The 20th Casualty Clearing Station was established at Boisleux-au-Mont in June and the 43rd in November, but both had left by the end of March 1918. From April to almost the end of August part of Boisleux-St. Marc was once again in German hands. In September, October and November, six Casualty Clearing Stations were posted at Boisleux-au-Mont for shorts periods. Sunken Road Cemetery was called at one time “Boisleux-au-Mont British Cemetery”. It was begun by the hospitals in May 1917 and used until July when it began to be shelled. (Source: CWGC)
