REDAN RIDGE CEMETERY No.2, BEAUMONT-HAMEL




Country: France
Locality: Somme
Identified Casualties: 155

Beaumont-Hamel is a village about 24 kilometres south of Arras and the Redan Ridge Cemeteries (Nos. 1, 2 and 3) are situated to the north of the village.
Using the D919 from Arras to Amiens you will drive through the villages of Bucquoy, Puisieux then Serre-les-Puisieux (approximately 20 kilometres south of Arras). On leaving Serre-les-Puisieux, 700 metres further along the D919, turn left onto a small lane and continue for 1.4 kilometres. A CWGC signpost on the right hand side will lead you to Redan Ridge Cemeteries.
The register is available in the Mairie on Tuesday and Friday from 17.30 to 18.30 - Closed in July and August.
Redan Ridge lies to the North of Beaumont-Hamel village; it was named from The Redan, a group of British front-line trenches of 1916. The cemetery was made by the V Corps in the spring of 1917, when these battlefields were cleared.
Redan Ridge Cemetery No.2 is about 90 metres West of the old German front line.
There are now over 250, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over 100 are unidentified. All fell (with one exception) in July and November 1916, and belonged to the 4th, 29th and 2nd Divisions.
The cemetery covers an area of 362 square metres and its approach road 104 square metres. It is enclosed by a low rubble wall.
