Grevillers British Cemetery and New Zealand Memorial

Military cemetery (GREVILLERS)

The Grévillers Memorial was erected in honour of the 450 soldiers from New Zealand who were killed in action in 1918 but have no known grave. The monument stands in a cemetery which is the last resting place of 2,106 men, many of whom were declared 'DOD' (Died of Disease) and probably succumbed to 'Spanish Flu'. Between early 1918 and mid 1919 a particularly virulent form of flu spread far and wide as civilians and troops moved around the world, and it probably killed at least 25 million people.
