Chester Farm cemetery, situated in the Ypres Salient, is approximately one kilometre from the large Bedford House cemetery and a short distance from Spoilbank cemetery.

The cemetery (inevitably named after a farm close by) contains 424 burials were of men killed while fighting on the nearby 'Bluff'.

Also buried in the cemetery are four German soldiers.
