Departement de la Somme
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Fouquescourt is a village 35 kilometres east of Amiens and 8 kilometres due north of Roye. The British Cemetery is a little north of the village on the east side of the road to Maucourt.
Fouquescourt village was captured by the 10th Canadian Infantry Brigade on 10 August 1918. Fouquescourt British Cemetery was made after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the battlefields in a wide area round the village and other burial grounds.
The cemetery contains 376 Commonwealth burials and commemorations of the First World War. 130 of the burials are unidentified but there is a special memorial to one casualty believed to be buried among them, and to five others buried by the Germans whose graves could not be found. The date of death in the great majority of cases is February or March 1917, or March, April or August 1918, but a few graves of 1915 will be found in Plots I and III.
