Charleroi was the scene of fighting between 21 and 24 August 1914 and for the rest of the First World War it was a German military and administrative centre. The 270 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried in the communal cemetery either died as prisoners of war, or after the Armistice.
The cemetery also contains 38 Second World War burials, most of them airmen and 23 war graves of other nationalities.
