Notre Dame de Lorette

I can find no trace of a British cemetery at N.D. de Lorette. Was it moved, or is this a misnaming, perhaps of the one at La Targette?

That's not at Notre Dame de Lorette but in nearby Ablain St Nazaire. It could be the Sucrerie Cemetery but I am not sure the position is right.

At the bottom of the card it says it is Cabaret Rouge cemetery.

Martin

Edit: I am looking at the wrong picture!

Michelle, I'm having a hard time orienting myself from your picture. Is that N.D. de Lorette at the top of the frame? And what town is that at the foot of the hill?

What direction are you looking?

Hi Michael

N D de Lorette is at the top of the hill; you can see the chapel and tower. The village is Ablain St Nazaire, with the old church which was destroyed during WW1 and not rebuilt in mid photo. Not sure which direction I was looking compass wise though. The church looks like it tallies with the postcard. The new church is nowhere near the old one, the locals apparently call the old church the ruins.

Regards, Michelle
