Cemetery notes and/or description:
Zuydcoote is a village in the Department of the Nord about 10 kilometres north-east of Dunkirk. The Military Cemetery is west of the village and about 550 metres east of Zuydcoote Halte.

In the autumn of 1917, while the XV Corps was holding the Nieuport section, the 34th and 36th Casualty Clearing Stations were posted at Zuydcoote; and the Military Cemetery contains, for the most part, the graves of officers and men who died in these hospitals.

There are now over 300 World War I casualties commemorated in this site. The cemetery covers an area of 1,042 square metres and is enclosed by a wall. On the west side of it is Zuydcoote French National Cemetery, made after the Armistice, and containing over 1,000 French and 170 German graves. Two of the British graves were brought after the Armistice from Zuydcoote Churchyard French Military Extention.
