Potijze Chateau Wood Cemetery


For information about the fighting here see the entry for Potijze Chateau Grounds Cemetery. The old chateau grounds at Potijze are the site of three Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries containing over 850 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. Potijze Chateau Grounds, Potijze Chateau Lawn, and Potijze Chateau Wood cemeteries were all formed in the spring of 1915 and used for the burial of Commonwealth soldiers until 1918.


The architectural features of the cemeteries were designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield in the 1920s.


There is one Falkirk and District man buried here.
