Dickebusch Old Military Cemetery
is a Commonwealth War Graves Commission
(CWGC) burial ground for the dead of World War I
and World War II
located in the Ypres Salient
on the Western Front
of the first war.
The cemetery grounds were assigned to the United Kingdom in perpetuity by King Albert I of Belgium in recognition of the sacrifices made by the British Empire in the defence and liberation of Belgium during the first war.
The cemetery, opposite the local churchyard, was founded in January 1915 when this area was in the front line. It was used until March 1915, when a new cemetery
was established in the village.
The cemetery was used again in May 1940, for ten British troops killed during the retreat after the invasion of Belgium by Nazi forces.
The cemetery was designed by J R Truelove.
