Contalmaison is a village and commune in the Department of the Somme, 6 kilometres east-north-east of Albert.
The sunken road from which this cemetery is named is part of the Contalmaison-Pozières road. The cemetery lies in the fields on Accommodation Road 400 metres east of the main Contalmaison to Pozières road.
Access to the cemetery is via a rough track which can be inaccessible under bad weather conditions.
Even under good conditions I would not suggest that this is a track for any vehicle with a low undercarriage.
The 2nd Canadian Cemetery was made in July-October, 1916, during the middle fighting in the Somme offensive.
There are now over 40, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site.
The Cemetery covers an area of 383 square metres and is enclosed by a low red brick wall.
