Photo of Mill Road Cemetery, Thiepval
View showing the unusually high number of recumbent/horizontal headstones.
Due to extensive settlement of the earth in this area of Mill Road Cemetery , it was decided many years ago to place the headstones in a recumbent position due to the difficulties that were experienced when the headstones were in an upright position. It was discovered that the area around this cemetery was heavily tunnelled during the 1914/1918 war so this would have contributed to the decision that was made to lie the headstones down.
