Grave or Reference Panel Number: IV. K. 6.

Location: Bancourt is a village which lies approximately 4 kilometres due east of Bapaume on the north side of the D7, Bapaume to Bertincourt road. Bancourt British Cemetery is situated east of Bancourt village, 300 metres off the D7 on the north side. The CWGC direction signs on the D7 indicate the best approach to the cemetery.

Historical Information: The Cemetery was made (so far as the original burials are concerned) by the New Zealand Division in September, 1918. The original cemetery is now Plot I, Rows A and B; the remainder of the cemetery was made after the Armistice by the concentration of graves from the battlefields East and South of Bancourt and from certain British and German cemeteries. The great majority of the graves thus concentrated belonged to the winter of 1916-1917, the retreat of March, 1918, or the advance of August-September, 1918. There are now nearly 2,500, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over half are unidentified, and special memorials are erected to 40 soldiers from the United Kingdom, two from Australia and one from New Zealand, known or believed to be buried among them. Another special memorial bears the name of a soldier from the United Kingdom, buried in Bapaume Reservoir German Cemetery, whose grave could not be found on concentration. The cemetery covers an area of 7,401 square metres and is enclosed by a brick wall. The cemeteries from which British and Dominion graves were brought to Bancourt British Cemetery were the following:- BAPAUME RESERVOIR GERMAN CEMETERY, on the Bapaume Beaulencourt road, containing the graves of twelve soldiers from the United Kingdom buried by a German Field Ambulance in March and April, 1918, and of seven others and three from New Zealand who fell at the end of August, 1918. BAPAUME ROAD CEMETERY, BEAULENCOURT, 400 metres south of the Beaulencourt-Gueudecourt road, containing the graves of 20 soldiers from the United Kingdom who fell in October, 1916. BEAULENCOURT ROAD CEMETERIES, three in number, on the North-East side of Gueudecourt, containing the graves of 88 soldiers from the United Kingdom who fell in the autumn of 1916 or in April, 1917. CLOUDY TRENCH CEMETERY, GUEUDECOURT, containing the graves of 40 soldiers from the United Kingdom who fell in October or November, 1916. The five cemeteries last named were made by the 5th Australian Division in April, 1917. FREMICOURT COMMUNAL CEMETERY EXTENSION. This Extension was begun by the Germans, who buried in it 1,346 of their own soldiers and 136 officers and men from the United Kingdom who fell in March, 1918. It was taken over in September, 1918, by British and Dominion units, who used it for clearing the battlefields and for fresh burials, and added 94 graves. All the graves have now been removed to other cemeteries. SUNKEN ROAD CEMETERY, LESBOEUFS, between Gueudecourt and Le Transloy, made by the 5th Australian Division in April, 1917. It contained the graves of 49 soldiers from the United Kingdom and one from Australia who fell in October, 1916.
