Cemetery History
Canada Farm Cemetery took its name from a farmhouse used as a dressing station during the 1917 Allied offensive on this front.
Most of the burials are of men who died at the dressing station between June and October 1917.
There are now 907 First World War burials in the cemetery. The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
