Barclays Bank Companies Men - Third Battle of Ypres (Passchendaele) - Tyne Cot Cemetery and Memorial

The Third Battle of Ypres, commonly known as the Battle of Passchendaele, took place from 31st July 1917 to 10th November 1917.

There are 11,961 Commonwealth servicemen buried there, of whom more than 8,300 remain unidentified. The site also contains the Tyne Cot Memorial Wall to the Missing, which commemorates nearly 35,000 servicemen from the United Kingdom and New Zealand who died on the Ypres Salient after 16th August 1917 and whose graves are not known.
