On 23rd April, in the Second Battle of The Scarpe, Infantry Hill and Guemappe were captured by Commonwealth troops. Guemappe was lost the same day, but retaken almost at once, and further progress was made in the following days. In May the 29th Division began this cemetery and buried in it a number of the dead of 23rd April. It continued in use until March 1918, and was used again from August to October 1918. The cemetery contains 402 Commonwealth burials and commemorations of the First World War.
