Mesnil Ridge Cemetery, Mesnil-Martinsart



Mesnil Ridge Cemetery, Mesnil-Martinsart.  The cemetery was made by Field Ambulances and fighting units (mainly of the 29th and 36th (Ulster) Divisions) between August 1915 and August, 1916. There are now nearly 100 casualties of the Great War commemorated in this site. The cemetery covers an area of 747 square metres and is enclosed by a stone rubble wall.  Mesnil-Martinsart is a commune in the Department of the Somme, on the right bank of the Ancre, between Albert and Beaumont-Hamel. Using the D929 from Bapaume to Albert, continue until you reach La Boisselle where there is a right turn signposted to Aveluy on the D20. Upon entering Aveluy continue straight until the crossroads where you should turn right to Beamont-Hamel. Continue for 4 kilometres and then take the left turning to Mesnil Martinsart.  On reaching Mesnil village, take the first right turn and then the first right turn again where a rough road will take you 1.5 kilometres to the cemetery.
