Hi all!

About Hop Store Cemetery. The Hop Store Cemetery, opened in May 1915, was on the safer side of the village but it remained a small cemetery because of its position between a hedge and the premises of the hop store itself. The site was low and marshy, particularly at the west end, and was drained by the Royal Engineers early in 1917. Because it was "safe", the British used the red brick building at the south of the cemetery as Dressing Station. Also the deathd from the dressing station at the White Windmill, more to the village, are also buried on this cemetery. I saw a picture of it, but i doesn't ow the photograph.

Now i need some information about both Dressing Stations. The names and history about them. Who can helps me?
