The cemetery was begun in May 1916 and was used by the three medical units until April 1917.

From March to May 1918, it was used by Australian units, and in the early autumn for further hospital burials when the 20th Casualty Clearing Station was there briefly in August and September 1918. The last burial was made in May 1919. There are now 2,890 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
