Grove Town Cemetery, Meaulte, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Dec 25, 2020

In September 1916, the 34th and 2/2nd London Casualty Clearing Stations were established at this point, known to the troops as Grove Town, to deal with casualties from the Somme battlefields.

They were moved in April 1917 and, except for a few burials in August and September 1918, the cemetery was closed. Grove Town Cemetery contains 1,395 First World War burials. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
