|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Poix-du-Nord is a village about 66 kilometres south-east of Lille and 8 kilometres south of Le Quesnoy, south- east of Lille on the main Valenciennes- Landrecies-Guise road. The Cemetery is on the northern side of the village on the road leading to Ghissignies. There are further burials in the Extension, on the north side of the Communal Cemetery.
The village was captured in the latter part of October, 1918. The cemetery contains, near the North East corner, the graves of three soldiers from the United Kingdom who fell in or after the capture of the village. Immediately in front of the Cross of Sacrifice is the grave of an un-identified British airman who fell during the 1939-1945 War.
