|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Borre is a village 3 kilometres east of Hazebrouck on the N42. On reaching the village, turn right just before the church on the road signposted Sec Bois. The cemetery is 120 metres from the junction on the right hand side.
The cemetery was used from May to September 1918 by field ambulances and fighting Units, particularly those of the 1st Australian Division, during the interval between the German and Allied offensives of that year. The cemetery now contains 367 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and three German war graves. There are also five burials of the Second World War. The cemetery was designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
