Meerut Military Cemetery

Military cemetery (SAINT-MARTIN-BOULOGNE)

Meerut Military Cemetery was begun on the site of a hospital which, between October 1914 and November 1915, cared for the wounded soldiers of the Meerut Division of the Indian Corps. Sent to the front in Flanders, the Indians suffered heavy losses in fighting around Neuve-Chapelle and Laventie in 1915. The hospital closed when the division was transferred to the Middle East. Today the cemetery contains 279 graves, as well as those of 27 Egyptian workers killed in an air raid in 1917.
