Kemmel was the scene of fierce fighting in the latter half of April, 1918, in which both British and French forces were engaged. The earliest burials in the cemetery were made in March, 1915, and units and Field Ambulances continued to use it until October, 1917. It was enlarged after the Armistice by the concentration of graves from the battlefields surrounding Kemmel.

There are now over 300, 1914-18 war casaulties commemorated in this site. Of these, over one-fifth are unidentified and special memorials are erected to four soldiers from Australia and two from the United Kingdom, known or believed to be buried among them. The cemetery covers an area of 1,404 square metres and is enclosed by a brick and stone wall.
