HUNTER'S CEMETERY, BEAUMONT-HAMEL, SOMME, FRANCE.




Identified Casualties: 41

Beaumont-Hamel is a village in the Department of the Somme.
Using the D919 from Arras to Amiens you will drive through the villages of Bucquoy and Puisieux and then Serre-les-Puisieux (approximately 20 kilometres south of Arras). On leaving Serre-les-Puisieux, 3 kilometres further along the D919, turn left following the signs for "Newfoundland Park, Beaumont Hamel".
Hunter's Cemetery stands at the upper end of "Y" Ravine, within Newfoundland Memorial Park.
Beaumont-Hamel was attacked in vain on the 1st July, 1916, and captured by the 51st (Highland) and 63rd (Royal Naval) Divisions on the following 13th November.
Hunter's Cemetery (the origin of the name may refer to a Chaplain attached to the Black Watch, the Rev. Hunter) is, in fact, a great shell-hole, in which soldiers of the 51st Division, who fell in the capture of Beaumont-Hamel, were buried after the battle.
This is one of the most picturesque and attractive cemeteries that I have visited.
