Hospital Farm Cemetery
Hospital Farm Cemetery is located 6.5 km west of Ypres town centre, on the Hospitaalstraat, which connects Ypres to Poperinge. It is set in an extremely tranquil rural setting, behind the farm, and is accessed through a field used to graze livestock.
Hospital Farm was the name given to a farm building used as a dressing station. The cemetery was used particularly in 1915 and in 1917 by regiments and batteries engaged in the fighting around Ypres.
Robinson Ormerod, who was killed by a sniper's bullet in 1915, is buried in the Cemetery (Grave Ref. A. 7).
Robinson's ancestry can be traced back through the Ormerods of Fence.
