REDAN RIDGE CEMETERY NO.3, BEAUMONT-HAMEL




Country: France
Locality: Somme
Identified Casualties: 33

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.
Redan Ridge 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. 3 is among the old German front line trenches.
There are now over 50, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, half are unidentified and 13 graves which were destroyed by shell fire, are now represented by special memorials. The great majority of these officers and men fell in November, 1916, and belonged to the 2nd Division.
The Cemetery covers an area of 283 square metres and its approach road 35 square metres. It is enclosed by a low rubble wall.
