Beauval Communal Cemetery (CWGC, 2016)
The 4th Casualty Clearing Station was at Beauval from June 1915 to October 1916 and the 47th from October to December 1916. The great majority of the burials were carried out from these hospitals, but a few were made as late as March 1918. After the Armistice, graves from Lucheux Military Cemetery were moved to Rows A and G of this cemetery.
Lucheux Military Cemetery was made by French troops and used at intervals from 1916 to 1918 by British units. It stood at the South end of the village of Lucheux, in wooded country North-East of Doullens. It contained the graves of 48 French soldiers, twelve British and one New Zealand, and two men of the Chinese Labour Corps.
Beauval Communal Cemetery contains 248 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. There is also one Second World War burial.
The Commonwealth plot was designed by G H Goldsmith.
