Bapaume Post Military Cemetery, Albert, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jan 25, 2019

Bapaume Post Military Cemetery lies on the west side of “Tara Hill,” and south-west of “Usna Hill,” and at times it was called by those names. In June 1916, the front line crossed the Bapaume road between the site of this cemetery and the village of La Boisselle. The attack on La Boisselle on 1 July was not successful, and several days passed before the village was taken. The cemetery was begun almost at once by the divisions engaged in this sector and 152 graves in Plot I, Rows B to I, were made before the end of January 1917, when the cemetery was closed.
