The Commonwealth military cemetery of Marfaux D386 51170 Marfaux fr

The Commonwealth military cemetery of Marfaux is one of the largest of the region. It lies on a hillside and has been built around the slopes where so much violent fighting took place during the Second Battle of the Marne. 

It contains the bodies of 1,114 soldiers from the UK and 15 New Zealanders. The three recurring elements typical of British cemeteries can be found here at Marfaux: the stone of remembrance, the Chapel of the Resurrection and the cross of sacrifice.
