Duhallow Advanced Dressing Station Cemetery, believed to have been named after a southern Irish hunt, was a medical post 1.6 kilometres north of Ypres. The cemetery was begun in July 1917 and in October and November 1918, it was used by the 11th, 36th and 44th Casualty Clearing Stations. The cemetery contains many graves of artillerymen and engineers as well as 41 men of the 13th Company Labour Corps, killed when a German aircraft dropped a bomb on an ammunition truck in January 1918. After the Armistice, the cemetery was enlarged when graves were brought from isolated sites and a number of small cemeteries on the battlefields around Ypres. William Moody from Oakham is buried here. Duhallow gave its name to special memorials in cemeteries across the Western Front known as Duhallow Stones which commemorate men whose original graves are now lost. Duhallow A.D.S. Cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
