FRANKFURT TRENCH BRITISH CEMETERY, BEAUMONT-HAMEL




Country: France
Locality: Somme
Identified Casualties: 127

Beaumont-Hamel is a village in the Department of the Somme, about 24 kilometres south-west of Arras and 10 kilometres north of Albert.
Using the D919 from Arras to Amiens you will drive through the villages of Bucquoy, Puisieux and Serre les Puisieux. On leaving Serre les Puisieux, 3 kilometres further along the D919 turn left onto the D174 following the signs for Auchonvillers. After 1.3 kilometres turn left onto the D163 in the direction of Beaumont. At the crossroads in the village of Beaumont, continue straight ahead in the direction of Miraumont. Frankfurt Trench British Cemetery is about 1 kilometre further along on the left and New Munich Trench British Cemetery is a further 100 metres along from there.
Beaumont-Hamel was attacked by the 29th Division on the 1st July 1916, but it could not be held. It was attacked again and taken on 13 November 1916 by the 51st (Highland) and 63rd (Royal Naval) Divisions.
Frankfurt Trench British Cemetery is named from a German trench about 1.6 kilometres North-East of the village, which remained in enemy hands until the German retreat early in 1917. The cemetery was made by the V Corps after that retreat, when their units cleared the Ancre battlefield, and it was known also as V Corps Cemetery No.11.
There are now over 150, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over one-fifth are unidentified.
The cemetery covers an area of 427 square metres and enclosed by a concrete curb.
