Templeux-le-Guerard British Cemetery, France, Now Available on Geneanet

Posted by Jean-Yves on Oct 19, 2021

The village was taken early in April 1917, lost on the 21st March 1918, and retaken by the 15th Suffolks of the 74th (Yeomanry) Division on the following 18th September.

There are now over 750, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, nearly a quarter are unidentified and special memorials are erected to 16 soldiers from the United Kingdom, known or believed to be buried among them. The irregular lettering of the Rows is due to the concentrations of graves carried out after the Armistice. The cemetery covers an area of 2,509 square metres and is enclosed on three sides by a low rubble wall. (Source: Commonwealth War Graves Commission)
