|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Prémont is a village some 19.5 kilometres south-east of Cambrai on the road to Guise and a little south-east of the main straight road from St. Quentin to Le Cateau. Prémont British Cemetery is 1.5 kilometres south-east of the village on the south side of the road to Bohain.
Prémont village was captured by the 30th American Division on the 8th October 1918. Prémont British Cemetery was made and used by four Casualty Clearing Stations (the 20th, 50th, 55th and 61st), which came to Bohain in October 1918, and it was closed in the following December. Some years later 165 graves were added to it from other nearby battlefield sites.
This cemetery contains the graves of 536 Commonwealth casualties of the First World War, eight of which are unidentified. There are also 36 German casualties buried here, two of which are unidentified. The cemetery was designed by Charles Holden.
