St. Aubert British Cemetery

 

St Aubert

 

St Aubert British Cemetery, Nord, France, was begun on 12 October 1918, just after the capture of the village. After the Armistice, further graves were brought in from small cemeteries in the area and from the battlefields of Cambrai (November-December 1917) and Cambrai and the Selle (October 1918). The cemetery now contains 435 burials and commemorations of the First World War. Some 41 of the burials are unidentified but there is a special memorial to one casualty believed to be buried among them.

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