Pas de Calais
Ecoust-St Mein is a village 10 kilometres north-east of Bapaume and L'Homme Mort is a hamlet nearly 3 kilometres to the south-west. The Cemetery is near the east side of the Braucourt-St Leger road, the D36E.
The hamlet of L'Homme Mort saw fighting in March and August 1918. Plot I, Row A, of the cemetery was made in August 1918; the rest of this Plot and the whole of Plot II were formed after the Armistice when graves were brought in from the neighbouring battlefields. The cemetery now contains 166 burials of the First World War, 104 of them unidentified.
