|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is a large metropolitan cemetery to the south of the city in the suburb of Bagneux. From the railway station take the Avenue Mark Dormoy. Continue straight on until you reach the second set of traffic lights when the cemetery entrance will be found on the right. Near the east corner of the cemetery are two small Commonwealth plots.
The British War Graves in the neighbourhood of Paris fall into three main groups. The earliest are those of soldiers who died of wounds in French and British hospitals in or near Paris in 1914, when the ambulance trains ran South-Westward from the Aisne and the Marne. The second group is due to the presence of British troops in the Aisne and the Marne in the summer of 1918. The third is a number of graves of men who died after the Armistice. In the 19th Division, near the East corner, are two small British plots in which are buried Commonwealth casualties.
There are now over 30 World War I and a small number of World War II casualties commemorated in this site. The plots cover an area of 133 square metres.
