Aubigny Communal Cemetery is south of the village of Aubigny-en-Artois
and the Cemetery Extension is behind it. The village of Aubigny-en-Artois
is approximately 15 kilometres north-west of Arras on the road
to St. Pol. After turning into the village from the N.39 on the
D.75, the Cemetery lies south on a road leading from the centre
of the village.
From March 1916 to the Armistice, Aubigny was held by Commonwealth
troops and burials were made in the extension until September
1918. The 42nd Casualty Clearing Station buried in it during
the whole period, the 30th in 1916 and 1917, the 24th and 1st
Canadian in 1917 (during the capture of Vimy Ridge by the Canadian
Corps) and the 57th in 1918. The extension now contains 2,771
Commonwealth burials of the First World War and seven from the
Second World War. There are also 227 French burials made prior
to March 1916, and 64 German war graves. The extension was designed
by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
