WOODS CEMETERY The commune of Zillebeke contains many British cemeteries; the front-line trenches ran through it during the greater part of the War. The Woods Cemetery was begun by the 1st Dorsets and the 1st East Surreys in April, 1915, and it was used until September, 1917 by units holding this sector, and by the Field Ambulances of their Divisions. The graves of the 2nd, 3rd and 10th Canadian Battalions and the London Regiment are particularly numerous.
There are now over 300, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over 30 are unidentified. The cemetery covers an area of 3,181 square metres and is enclosed by a low brick wall.
