This cemetery is close to the centre and walk-able, although it is near a park and ride car park. The memorial names seem to go on forever. We only dashed in because we were going elsewhere but lingered amongst the names and the graves , remembering a lost generation from everywhere in Britain, the names came from all over the country. We forgot where we were dashing to and stayed to look at the beautifully cleaned and restored carvings. Our attention was caught by John Harrison VC from Hull, a rugby league player of some note, with no known grave. If you are in Arras don't miss this, it is well worth the time and effort finding it, as a reviewer has previously said it is not well signed. Well done CWGC, the cemeteries are looking magnificent with their restoration for the 2014-2018 commemorations.
