Cemetery notes and/or description:
Contalmaison is a village in the Department of the Somme, 6 kilometres east-north-east of Albert. The Sunken Road, from which the cemetery is named, is part of the Contalmaison-Pozières road, and the cemetery lies a little east of the road.

The Sunken Road Cemetery was made in July-October, 1916, during the middle fighting in the Somme offensive. There are now over 200 World War I casualties commemorated at this site. Of these, a small number are unidentified and three Australian graves, which cannot be located, are represented by special memorials. The graves of two German soldiers, buried by the enemy at the end of March, 1918, have been removed. The cemetery covers an area of 1,106 square metres, without the access road and is enclosed by a low red brick wall. The rough track which leads from the main road to the cemetery can be inaccessible under bad weather conditions.
