The village of Hannescamps was just behind the Allied front line until June 1916, and again in 1918. Hannescamps New Military Cemetery was begun in March 1916 and used until February 1917, and again in March 1918. Thirty graves were brought into the cemetery from the immediate neighbourhood after the Armistice.  This pretty little cemetery was designed by W C Von Berg.
