Hazebrouck Communal Cemetery


Hazebrouck 1


Hazebrouck Communal Cemetery, Nord, France. Commonwealth burials began in the communal cemetery in October 1914 and continued until July 1918. At first, they were made among the civilian graves, but after the Armistice these earlier burials were moved into the main Commonwealth enclosure. The cemetery now contains 877 Commonwealth burials of the First World War (17 of them unidentified) and 86 from the Second World War (20 of them unidentified).

One man of the North Irish Horse, Lance Corporal R. I. Bradley, is buried here. The location of his grave is shown on the CWGC cemetery plan below.
