This cemetery contains the mass grave - or ossuary - of about 80 French soldiers. A further 150 French casualties are buried in individual graves, including 8 soldiers of the Muslin faith. On the neighbouring communal burial ground, the grave of Karel Cogge can be found. He played a crucial role in the inundation of the IJzer valley in 1914.

Open daily from sunrise to sunset. Free entry.
