Cemetery notes and/or description:
Favreuil is a village in the Department of the Pas-de-Calais about 2 kilometres north of Bapaume. From Bapaume take the road to Douai (D956) and continue for 2.5 kilometres. Turn left onto the D10E and continue for 350 metres. Favreuil British Cemetery will be found on the left hand side and is visible from the road.

Favreuil village was occupied by British troops in March, 1917, lost in March, 1918, and retaken by the 37th and New Zealand Divisions on the 25th August. The cemetery was begun in April, 1917, and used until March, 1918, by fighting units (particularly of the 62nd (West Riding) Division) and Field Ambulances. Further burials were made in August and September, 1918, and after the Armistice British graves were brought from other burial grounds and from the neighbouring battlefields. There are now nearly 400, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site.
