BEEHIVE CEMETERY (WILLERVAL)
Pas de Calais, France

Grave Reference:

A. 2.

Location:

Willerval is a village in the Department of the Pas-de-Calais, 10 kilometres north-east of Arras. Beehive Cemetery is one kilometre north of the village and 600 metres by the footpath from the west side of the D50E road to Mericourt in a place called Lorgette. The cemetery owes its name to a German machine gun emplacement known to the British troops as The Beehive. The cemetery covers an area of 431 square yards. It is enclosed by a concrete curb and a thorn hedge and planted with maples. It stands among cornfields, on the crest of a low ridge, with considerable views of the Vimy battlefield.
