Departement de l'Oise
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Verberie was the scene of fighting on September 1st, 1914, and in 1918 French Ambulances were stationed in the village. The Cemetery adjoins the South side of the Communal Cemetery. The British graves are of 1914 and 1918 and were brought in from other cemeteries after the Armistice. There are now over 70 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over a quarter are unidentified and a special memorial records the names of twelve men of "L" Battery, R.H.A., who fell in the Affair of Nery: five are buried here and seven at Nery Copmmunal Cemetery, none of whom could be individually identified, hence they are all commemorated at both sites. Also included are the names of twelve of the seventeen men of the 2nd and 5th Dragoon Guards, who fell in the Affair of Nery and are buried in this grave.
