Cemetery notes and/or description:
Longueval is 13 kilometres east of Albert. Caterpillar Valley was the name given by the army to the long valley which rises eastwards, past Caterpillar Wood, to the high ground at Guillemont.

The cemetery now contains 5,569 Commonwealth burials; 3,796 unidentified. There are special memorials to 32 casualties known to be buried among them.

On 6 November 2004, the remains of an unidentified New Zealand soldier were entrusted to New Zealand at a ceremony held at the Longueval Memorial, France. The remains were exhumed by staff of the CWGC from Caterpillar Valley Cemetery, Longueval, France, Plot 14, Row A, Grave 27 and were later laid to rest within the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, at the National War Memorial, Wellington, New Zealand.
