Frameries Communal Cemetery

Information from the website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission:
The village of Frameries is located south-west of Mons off the R5 ring.
The 9th Infantry Brigade fought their way through the streets of Frameries on 24 August 1914. The village remained in German hands until retaken by the Canadian Corps at the end of the war.
The North-West part of the Communal Cemetery contains three small Plots of British graves. In Plot 1 are the graves of 69 soldiers from the United Kingdom who fell in August 1914, and who belonged mainly to the 3rd Division and largely to the 1st Lincolns; these graves, with one exception, were brought into the cemetery after the Armistice. In Plot II are nine United Kingdom burials and eight Canadian, of 1914 and 1918; five of these were brought in. Plot III contains nine burials of 1914.
The cemetery now contains 95 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 67 of which are unidentified.

There is a plot with graves of Belgian casualties of the First World War and a monument for the casualties of the First World War.
