Cabaret-Rouge British Cemetery, Souchez, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jan 30, 2019

“Caberet Rouge” was a small, red-bricked, red-tiled café that stood close to this site in the early days of the First World War. The café was destroyed by shellfire in March 1915, but it gave its unusual name to this sector and to a communication trench that led troops up the front-line. Commonwealth soldiers began burying their fallen comrades here in March 1916. The cemetery was used mostly by the 47th (London) Division and the Canadian Corps until August 1917 and by different fighting units until September 1918. (Source: CWGC)
