      Cemetery: LA NEUVILLE COMMUNAL CEMETERY, CORBIE, Somme, France
      Grave Reference/
      Panel Number: B. 87.
      Location: Corbie is a village 15 kilometers south-west of Albert and approximately 23 kilometers due east of Amiens. La Neuville Communal Cemetery is north of the village.

      Historical Information: In April, 1916, No. 21 Casualty Clearing Station came to La Neuville, to remain there throughout the Battles of the Somme, 1916, until March, 1917; and the British Cemetery was opened for it early in July, 1916. Burials from this hospital, and during this period, form the great majority of the British and Dominion burials in either Cemetery, though a few graves were added in each during the fighting on the Somme in 1918. The War Graves in the Communal Cemetery form one long row on the East side of the Cemetery. There are now nearly 200, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site.
