Remembered Today:

Roclincourt Valley Cemetery, Pas de Calais

Recommended Posts

This cemetery was created after the 9th April 1917 by various units that fought in the vicinity on that day, principally the 51st and 34th Divisions.

The cemetery was enlarged after the armistice when graves (mostly from April 1917) were brought in from smaller cemeteries and from the surrounding battlefield.

Two of the more important cemeteries that were concentrated into the site were King Crater Cemetery, Roclincourt, and Kite Crater Cemetery, St. Laurent-Blangy.

Can anybody supply me with the former location/trench map details of these sites. Secondly, were these mines blown by the British or the Germans and are there any traces remaining?

Regards, Chris.
