Elzenwalle Brasserie Cemetery

Information from the website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission:
Elzenwalle Brasserie Cemetery is located 5 km south west of Ieper town centre, on the Kemmelseweg, a road connecting Ieper to Kemmel (N331). 
This cemetery is named from a brewery which stood opposite and is in fact a collection of small regimental burial grounds, of which Plot III in particular was made by the 22nd Bn Canadian Infantry (Quebec Regt). The eight plots are numbered neither in order of date nor in order of position, and the short rows vary from one grave to fourteen, but they record the names of the units which held the trenches on this front from February 1915 to June 1917, and of some of those which, from June to November 1917, held the forward line won in the Battle of Messines. Elzenwalle Brasserie Cemetery contains 149 First World War burials. The cemetery was designed by G H Goldsmith.
