The Western Front Today - Hedge Row Trench Cemetery

Hedge Row Trench Cemetery, located in the Ypres Salient near 'The Bluff', contains 98 burials (94 U.K., 2 Canadian and 2 unknown) and is sited near the Ypres-Comines canal.

It was established in March 1915; the early graves were frequently disturbed however on account of the closeness of the battlefront.

The cemetery was once known as Ravine Wood cemetery.
