The cemetery site was chosen in July, 1917 for the 62nd and 63rd Casualty Clearing Stations, and burials from these and other hospitals (notably the 36th Casualty Clearing Station in 1918) continued until October, 1918. The name (with those of Mendinghem and Dozinghem) was given by the Army. Four British plots were made (I, II, III and V); four French (X, XI, XII and XIII), on the West side, removed after the Armistice; and a plot of German prisoners' graves in the North corner.

There are now over 750, 1914-18 and a small number of 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site. The cemetery covers an area of 2,264 square metres.
