Potijze was within the British lines during practically the whole of the war. The Chateau contained an Advanced Dressing Station; but was subject to incessant shell fire and very little of it remains. Potijze Chateau Wood Cemetery was used from April, 1915, to June, 1917, and three times in 1918.
There are now over 150, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. In Row A are buried 46 officers and men of the 2nd Hampshire Regiment, and in Rows E and F, 19 of the 1st Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, who fell in a gas attack in August, 1916. The cemetery covers an area of 796 square metres and is enclosed by a brick wall.
