This Military Cemetery of the First World War was used again during the Second World War, chiefly for the burial of casualties sustained during the defence of the Dunkirk-Newport perimeter in May 1940.

The cemetery now contains 1,507 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, the French graves from this period having since been removed. Of the 155 Second World War burials, 22 are unidentified.

The cemetery was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
