CHAMBRECY BRITISH CEMETERY

Chambrecy

Marne

France

 

General Directions: The cemetery can be reached via the RD980 road from Reims to Chateau Thierry. After about twenty minutes from leaving the outskirts of Reims it is necessary to take the second exit (straight on) at a roundabout. The road curves up an incline with an Italian cemetery on the right side of the road. After 300 metres, Chambrecy British Cemetery is visible on the right side of the road just before entering the village of Chambrecy. Parking is difficult on this fast road.

The cemetery was made after the Armistice, by the concentration of graves from the surrounding battlefields and from Courlandon Hospital (French Military) Cemetery.

The cemetery was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens & John Reginald Truelove

Casualty Details: UK 435, India 1, Total Burials: 436
