Ypres Reservoir Cemetery


Ypres Resevoir


Ypres Reservoir Cemetery, Ieper, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium, was begun in October 1915 and used by fighting units and field ambulances until after the Armistice, when it contained 1,099 graves. The cemetery was later enlarged when graves were brought in from the battlefields of the salient and smaller burial grounds. There are now 2,613 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in the cemetery. Some 1,034 of the burials are unidentified.

One man of the North Irish Horse, Rifleman J. Baxter, is buried here. The location of his grave is shown of the CWGC cemetery plan below.
