- Roclincourt is a village in the Department of the Pas-de-Calais, a little east of the road from Arras to Lens and Lille. The cemetery is on the west side of the main N17 road from Arras to Lens, about 6 kilometres north of Arras, and north of the village of Roclincourt. The cemetery was enlarged in 1926-29 by the concentration of 993 graves from a wide area mainly North and East of Arras. There are now over 1,000 First World war casualties commemorated in this site which covers an area of 4,084 square metres. It is enclosed on three sides by a stone rubble wall, and against the road by a retaining wall. Old dug-outs exist under the North-East corner and on the South-West boundary.
