Ontario Cemetery, Sains-Les-Marquion
Sains-les-Marquion is a village about 2 kilometres south of Marquion, which lies on the main Arras to Cambrai road. Ontario Cemetery is 1 kilometre due south of the village on the road to Havrincourt.
The Cemetery was made at the end of September and the beginning of October 1918, after the capture of Sains-les-Marquion by the Canadian Division. It was enlarged after the Armistice by the concentration of graves, partly from the battlefields, but mainly from the neighbouring German cemeteries. There are now over 300 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site, including Walter Ormerod (Grave Ref. IV. A. 14), of the Royal Air Force, who died on 29 August 1918.
