The Western Front Today - Bridge House Cemetery

Bridge House cemetery, in the Ypres Salient approximately one mile from St. Julien, is named after a nearby farmhouse.  It contains just 49 burials, 45 of which are from the U.K. plus a further 4 unknown burials; most of those buried are from the 59th (North Midland) Division.

The cemetery was begun during the Third Battle of Ypres in September 1917.
