Cemetery notes and/or description:
Berles-au-Bois is about 15 kilometres south-west of Arras and 3 kilometres south of the main road from Arras to Doullens (N25). The Cemetery lies at the north-west end of the village on the road leading to Bailleulmont.

The village of Berles-au-Bois remained in British hands from the summer of 1915, when it was taken over from French troops, until the end of the War; but it suffered at times from severe shelling.

Berles New Military Cemetery was begun by fighting units in January 1917, when the Churchyard Extension was closed; it was used until April 1918. There are now over 150 Commonwealth interments from World War I commemorated at this site. Of these, a small number are unidentified. The Cemetery covers an area of 972 square metres.
