Cabaret Rouge British Cemetery

What were once dugouts for battalion headquarters, today serves as one of the largest historical cemeteries in the region. The Cabaret Rouge British Cemetery contains some 7,655 burials from World War I, and according to experts, nearly half of these remain unidentified. 

The cemetery includes roughly 7,000 graves from those who died while at war in Arras, as well as a handful from burial grounds in Nod Pas-de-Calais, but nearly 50 Canadians who died during the Battle of Vimy Ridge are also laid to rest here. In early 2000, Canada exhumed a body from one such grave and laid him to rest in Ottawa, where he now memorializes all lost soldiers.
