Cemetery notes and/or description:
Pont-d'Achelles is north-west of the village of Nieppe, about 3.5 kilometres north-west of Armentieres on the road to Bailleul and about 1 kilometre from the Belgian border.

Pont-d'Achelles was within the Allied lines from 16 October 1914 until 11 April 1918, when the 34th Division was driven out of Nieppe after hard fighting, which the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and the 1/2nd Monmouths continued for some hours at Pont-d'Achelles. Nieppe was recaptured by the 29th Division on 3 September 1918.

The military cemetery at Pont-d'Achelles was begun in June 1917 and used by field ambulances and fighting units until the German advance in the following April. It was used by the Germans during their occupation, under the name of Papot Military Cemetery. The cemetery contains 293 Commonwealth and 37 German burials of the First World War and was designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
