Vermelles British Cemetery, Vermelles, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Feb 25, 2020

Vermelles was in German hands from the middle of October 1914 to the beginning of December 1914, when it was recaptured by the French. The cemetery was begun in August 1915 (though a few graves are slightly earlier), and during the Battle of Loos, when the Chateau was used as a dressing station, Plot I was completed. It was laid out and fenced by the Pioneers of the 1st Gloucesters, and known for a long time as “Gloucester Graveyard”. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
