Barlin Communal Cemetery Extension, Barlin, Pas de Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Calais Region, France

Notes: The Communal Cemetery and Extension lie to the north of the village on the D171 road to Houchin.

The extension was begun by French troops in October 1914 and when they moved south in March 1916 to be replaced by Commonwealth forces, it was used for burials by the 6th Casualty Clearing Station. In November 1917, Barlin began to be shelled and the hospital was moved back to Ruitz, but the extension was used again in March and April 1918 during the German advance on this front. The extension contains 1,095 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 2 being unidentified. There are 63 French and 13 German burials including 2 unidentified. The extension was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
