BETHLEEM FARM EAST CEMETERY Bethleem Farm East Cemetery was made by Australian units when the farm was captured by the 3rd Australian Division on the 7th June, 1917, in the Battle of Messines. The majority of the burials are those of officers and men killed in action on the 8th or the 10th June, though the cemetery was used until the following September. There are now over 40, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, nearly 10 are unidentified and a special memorial is erected to an Australian soldier known to be buried among them.
The cemetery covers an area of 339 square metres and is enclosed by a brick wall.
