|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The town of Longueau is situated on the south-eastern outskirts of Amiens and the British Cemetery is on the eastern side of the town. Leave the Amiens orbital bypass at Junction 34 towards Longueau on the N29. The cemetery is located on the left hand side of this road approximately 1 mile after leaving the bypass.
Longueau British Cemetery was begun in April 1918, when the Allied line was re-established before Amiens; it was used by fighting units and field ambulances until the following August. Plot IV was made after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the surrounding battlefields and a number of smaller cemeteries.
Longueau British Cemetery contains 204 First World War burials, 14 of which are unidentified. Two Second World War airmen are also buried in the cemetery. The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
