The monument commemorates the part that the 19th Division had in the heavy fighting in and around the area of La Boisselle in July 1916.
Having been in reserve throughout the 1st July 1916 the Division took over the line that evening from the 34th Division who had made some gains but failed to take La Boisselle village.
The 19th Division would finally take the village on the 4th July before spending the rest of the year on various parts of the battlefield.
