Senlis Communal Cemetery Extension

 

Senlis 1

 

Senlis Communal Cemetery Extension, Somme, France, was begun in April 1918 after the fall of Albert, by the 12th (Eastern) and 38th (Welsh) Divisions. It was used until the following August but was enlarged after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the battlefields of the Somme and from the communal cemetery, where 23 Commonwealth soldiers who died in April 1918 had been buried. The cemetery extension now contains 104 First World War burials.

One man of the North Irish Horse, Corporal T. J. McCormick, is buried here. The location of his grave is shown on the CWGC cemetery plan below.
