Mont Huon Military Cemetery, Le Tréport
During the First World War, Le Tréport was an important hospital centre, and by July 1916 the town contained three general hospitals (the 3rd, 16th and 2nd Canadian), No. 3 Convalescent Depot and Lady Murray's BRCS Hospital.
The 7th Canadian, 47th and 16th USA General Hospitals arrived later, but all of the hospitals had closed by March 1919.
As the original military cemetery at Le Tréport filled, it became necessary to use the new site at Mont Huon, and there are now 2,128 Commonwealth burials of the First World War in the Cemetery, including Robert Southern Ormerod (Grave Ref. VIII. E. 6B.), of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, who died on 5 September 1918.
