Louvencourt Military Cemetery

The small war cemetery of Louvencourt, in France, containing 227 graves, of which 133 are of British soldiers, 76 French, 17 New Zealanders and one Canadian. Within the cemetery are buried also three soldiers of the Second World War. Louvencourt, as well as many other British war cemeteries, scattered in the area where the battle of the Somme was fought, is far from the rhetorical monumentality of the other cemeteries of the Great War.
