Cemetery notes and/or description:

Bois-Grenier is a village 3 kilometres south of Armentieres on the D222. Brewery Orchard Cemetery will be found on the east side of the village of Bois-Grenier, on the north side of the D22 road to La Chapelle d'Armentieres.

The cellar of a local brewery was used as a dressing station, and the cemetery was started in the orchard nearby in November 1914. It was sheltered from enemy observation by ruined houses and continued in use until January 1918.

Brewery Orchard Cemetery contains 339 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. There are also four Second World War burials and five German war graves. The cemetery was designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
