Leuze Communal Cemetery
Leuze Communal Cemetery is located midway between Mons and Tournai. The British plots are in the South corner of the Cemetery, a little to the right of the entrance.
Leuze was in German hands from August 1914, until it was entered by Commonwealth forces on 10 November 1918. The communal cemetery was used by German medical units and, during the last fortnight of November 1918, by No. 44 and No. 2 Canadian Casualty Clearing Stations. The Cemetery contains 58 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, including the grave of William Norman Ormerod (Grave Ref. II. C. 3.), of the Tyneside Scottish, who died on 5 August 1918.
