Distinctive WWI cemetery. Walled. Accessible via stairs that separate the cemetery from scarce traffic. Beautiful elevation in the back for a nice view. Must see.
Our Great Grandfather 14378 Cpl (not Pte) William Kelly Royal Irish Fusiliers 36th Ulster Division was killed in action 1st July 1916 probably leading a charge on a German machine gun post as he was a Section Commander. I live in Australia now but whenever I go back to England we always go to this beautiful manicured cemetery to pay our respects not only to William but to all those brave men, women and children. The youngest was 15 😔😔🇬🇧🇬🇧
