Cambrai East Military Cemetery


Cambrai East


Cambrai East Military Cemetery was made by the Germans during their occupation and laid out with the greatest care, with monuments erected in it to the French, Commonwealth and German dead. The cemetery now contains 501 Commonwealth burials and commemorations of the First World War. Some 28 of the graves are unidentified but special memorials are erected to seven soldiers kown to be buried among them. Another special memorial commemorates a soldier buried by the Germans in Cauroir Communal Cemetery, whose grave could not be found.

Two men of the North Irish Horse, Private J. Ford and Private J. D. King, are buried here. The location of their graves is shown on the CWGC cemetery plan below.
