New Irish Farm Cemetery
New Irish Farm Cemetery is located to the north-east of Ypres.
The Cemetery was first used from August to November 1917, and again in April and May 1918. At the Armistice it contained just 73 burials - the three irregular rows of Plot I - but was then greatly enlarged when more than 4,500 graves were brought in from the battlefields north-east of Ypres and from numerous smaller cemeteries in the area. There are now 4,715 commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery.
