Wieltje Farm

 

 

A small battlefield cemetery.

You follow a long grass path from the road to this  cemetery.

The trees mark the main road and across it are further cemeteries.   

 

 

 

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission are always at work keeping the cemeteries in good order.

Sometimes in a small cemetery this can cause problems to the visitor.  The grass has to be given time to grow though.

I managed to visit and take my photos without disturbing the newly seeded ground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

By next year the grass will be fully restored again.

The roses and shrubs do add some colour though.

 

 

 

 

There are 116 burials in total and 10 of these are unidentified.

(20 of the men have special memorials.)

113 are United Kingdom

1 Canadian

1 New Zealand

1 German

It was used between July and October 1917 during 3rd Ypres.
