This cemetery, probably one of the finest in Belgium, is in a most quiet spot, very rural. Surrounded by fields and trees, it has a peacefulness that sometimes makes one feel anguished. There are two areas: one with the German graves, the other with the British ones.

This is administered by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission that maintains it in an admirable manner.

It is a very poignant place from which one comes away with a lot of emotion. The majority of soldiers killed during the Battle of Mons take their final rest there. The largest number of graves are those of the 4th Middlesex. After these moments of recollection, go back to Mons and to its main square. In the porch of the townhall, you will find two bronze plaques. One is dedicated to the 5th Royal Irish Lancers who took part in the two battles for Mons in 1914 and in 1918 (during the fighting for liberation). The other plaque is dedicated to the 3rd Canadian Division that took part in the fighting of November 1918.
