Cemetery notes and/or description:

Gouy is a village to the east of the road between Cambrai and St. Quentin. Prospect Hill Cemetery is about 1.5 kilometres east of the village on the north side of the road to Beaurevoir.

On 3 October 1918, the 1st King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry captured Prospect Hill, after Le Catelet and Gouy had been taken by the 50th (Northumbrian) Division, the 6th Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and the 4th King's Royal Rifle Corps. The cemetery was made by the 50th Division and the 18th Field Ambulance immediately after. Plot I formed the original cemetery but this was increased after the Armistice when graves were brought in, mainly from the battlefields north of Gouy, and almost exclusively of men who died in October 1918.

The cemetery contains 538 Commonwealth burials and commemorations of the First World War. 115 of the burials are unidentified and a special memorial commemorates one casualty believed to be buried among them. A group of graves in Plot IV, Row F, are identified as a whole but not individually. The cemetery also contains the grave of one Commonwealth airman of the Second World War. The cemetery was designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
