The story behind the Lewis burials at this cemetery is similar to that of the Brown's Copse Cemetery, which is situated about 3/4 mile to the north. The three men that this post refers to were all serving with the 2nd Seaforth Highlanders, and were all killed in action on 3 May 1917, during the battle to take Roeux, which lasted until the 16th of that month.
