During their occupation of the Berlaimont village (which lasted until November 1918), the Germans extended the communal cemetery on the north-east side for the burial of their own dead, and of Allied prisoners of war. The present extension was begun in November 1918 by the 21st and 33rd Divisions. After the Armistice, the German graves were removed and the graves of the Commonwealth prisoners moved to the Extension. In 1927 the communal cemetery was enlarged, and it now surrounds the extension on three sides.
The COMMUNAL CEMETERY contains one Commonwealth burial of the First World War.
