The cemetery grounds were assigned to the United Kingdom in perpetuity by King Albert I of Belgium in recognition of the sacrifices made by the British Empire in the defence and liberation of Belgium during the war.
The cemetery was founded in January 1917 by fighting units and field ambulances.
It was used after the Armistice to concentrate battlefield burials and Ferme Henri Pattyn Vanlaeres and Mont-Vidaigne Military cemeteries. An American soldier was buried here, but his body was later moved to Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery.
Within the cemetery is a Cross of Sacrifice.
The cemetery was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
