Albuera Cemetery, Bailleul-Sire-Berthoult, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jun 20, 2019

Bailleul-Sire-Berthoult was occupied by the 2nd Division on 13 April 1917 and Albuera Cemetery was made in April-November 1917 by fighting units; the origin of its current name is not known and it was often called Bailleul Military Cemetery. The cemetery was enlarged after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the battlefields of Arras. It is divided into two plots, called (exceptionally) North and South. Albuera Cemetery contains 253 Commonwealth burials and commemorations of the First World War. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
