The Commune of Noyers-Pont-Maugis, containing the village of Noyers and the hamlet of Pont-Maugis, is 20 kilometres south-east of Charleville-Mezieres and about 7 kilometres south of Sedan. The Cemetery is west of the village of Noyers on top of a hill.

The cemetery was made in 1920 for the re-burial of more than 1,700 French casualties who were moved there from battlefield graves. There are 489 identified and 20 unidentified French interments in the cemetery and a further 1200 sets of unidentified remains in an ossuary. In 1934 Commonwealth graves were also moved to this cemetery from civilian cemeteries at Bareilles, Deville, and Montherme, where maintenance in perpetuity could not be ensured. The cemetery now contains eight Commonwealth burials of the First World War and the graves of four Second World War airmen.
