A German Extension was made on its West side, but was removed after the Armistice. The Commonwealth Extension was made between the Armistice and the removal of the German Extension. There are 76 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-18 war. Many of the graves, identified collectively but not individually, are marked by headstones bearing the superscription "Buried near this spot."
