Departement du Nord
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
CaŽstre is a small village in the Department of the Nord, on the main road midway between the towns of Cassel and Bailleul, and about 10 kilometres from either place. The Military Cemetery is about 500 metres west of the village in the middle of pasture land on the north side of the road to Hondeghem.
CaŽstre Military Cemetery was opened in mid April 1918 by the Australian Corps and troops of the 9th (Scottish) Division. It was used until September 1918 for the burials of casualties sustained during the German offensive.
The cemetery now contains 190 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and five German war graves. The cemetery was designed by W. H. Cowlishaw.
