Historical Information

Lechelle was captured for the second time early in September, 1918, and the cemetery was made by the 53rd Field Ambulance and the 18th Casualty Clearing Station, which were posted near the site. (The origin of the name is not known with certainty.) It was used until the following month. In 1934 the grave of an unidentified British solier was concentrated into this cemetery from Lieramont Communal Cemetery.
