Cemetery:

QUEENS CEMETERY, PUISIEUX
Pas de Calais, France

Grave Reference:

E. 20.

Location:

Puisieux is a village 15 kilometres north of Albert and 26 kilometres south of Arras. The easiest way to reach the cemetery is to follow the D919 from Arras (sometimes indicated as N319), through the villages of Ayette, Bucquoy and Puisieux. Continue along this road, past the tiny village of Serre-les Puisieux, until you come to a large farm surrounded by tall poplar trees and adjacent to the large Serre Road Cemetery No.1. On your right you will see a set of CWGC direction signs indicating the way to a group of small cemeteries and the Sheffield Memorial Park. Queens Cemetery Puisieux is the second cemetery along the dirt track. It is situated in open fields facing the memorial park.
