Commemorative Information
Cemetery: FORCEVILLE COMMUNAL CEMETERY AND EXTENSION, Somme, France, Plot 3. Row D. Grave 6.
Location: Forceville is a village some 10 kilometres north-west of Albert on the road to Doullens. The Communal Cemetery and Extension lie to the west of the village of Forceville, 20 kilometres from Doullens and 10 kilometres from Albert, on the D938, the main road between these two places.
Historical Information: In 1915 British troops of the Third Army were sent to this area to take over from the French. In 1916 the Fourth Army were in occupation until 20th July, when Forceville was included in the area of the Fifth Army. In February, 1916, a Field Ambulance was established in the village, and it was succeeded by others until the end of July, 1916. In Plot I are buried the men who fell in the trench warfare on the Somme Front from September, 1915, to June, 1916. Plot II contains the graves of those who fell in the Somme offensive of July and August, 1916, while the graves in Plot III are of those who fell in the operations of the autumn of 1916. There was then a long gap in the dates of burials while the British Front had moved 80 kilometres further forward, and it was not until the British withdrawal in April, 1918, which ceased just east of the Cemetery, that burials took place in Plot IV. It was early in August, 1915, that additional land to the south of the Communal Cemetery was enclosed to provide space for military graves. There are now over 300, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. The Cemetery and Extension cover an area of 970 square metres and are enclosed by a low wall.
