Cemetery notes and/or description:
Caterpillar Valley (New Zealand) Memorial is located on a terrace in Caterpillar Valley Cemetery, which lies a short distance west of Longueval on the south side of the road to Contalmaison, 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. On 6 November 2004, the remains of an unidentified New Zealand soldier were exhumed by staff of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission from Caterpillar Valley Cemetery and were later laid to rest within the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, at the National War Memorial, Wellington, New Zealand.

Caterpillar Valley (New Zealand) Memorial commemorates 1200 officers and men of the New Zealand Division who died in the Battles of the Somme in 1916 and who have no known grave.
