The Military Cemetery sits on a quiet country lane a short distance from Albert. It was begun in August, 1915, by the 51st (Highland) Division, and carried on by the 18th and other Divisions in the line until the Battles of the Somme, 1916. It continued in use, chiefly by Field Ambulances, until April, 1917; and Plot II was made by the 18th Division at the end of August, 1918. There are now 713 casualties of the 1914-1918 war commemorated in this site. Percy Smith from Langham lies in Plot I, Row V, Grave 25
