Loos British Cemetery, Loos-en-Gohelle, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jan 15, 2020

The village has given its name to the battle of the 25th September – 8th October 1915, in which it was captured from the Germans by the 15th (Scottish) and 47th (London) Divisions, and defended by French troops on the 8th October. The cemetery was begun by the Canadian Corps in July 1917, and the graves then made are contained in Rows A and B of Plot I and Row A of Plot II. The remainder of the cemetery was formed after the Armistice by the concentration of graves from the battlefields and smaller cemeteries over a wide area North and East of the village.
