CWGC Undertakes Improvements at Essex Farm Cemetery

Essex Farm Cemetery, just north of Ypres, the site where Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was stationed in 1915 and likely wrote his famous poem, 'In Flanders Fields', is undergoing major renovation..

The cemetery, the final resting place of 1,200 servicemen of the First World War, is one of the most visited Commission sites in Belgium. The work being carried out includes: repairs to the turf, the installation of stepping stones and paths, repairing gates, moving notices, planting of additional hedges and flowers, managing the growth of trees.
