Faubourg D'Amiens Cemetery, Arras, Pas de Calais, France

Faubourg D'Amiens Cemetery, Arras, Pas de Calais, France where there are 2,647 identified British and Commonwealth casualties out of just over 2,650 buried there. The French handed over Arras to Commonwealth forces in the spring of 1916 and the system of tunnels upon which the town is built were used and developed in preparation for the major offensive planned for April 1917. The Commonwealth section of the FAUBOURG D'AMIENS CEMETERY was begun in March 1916, behind the French military cemetery established earlier. It continued to be used by field ambulances and fighting units until November 1918. The cemetery was enlarged after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the battlefields and from two smaller cemeteries in the vicinity.
