The Adelaide Cemetery is located near the village of Villers-Bretonneux just east of Amiens. The cemetery was begun early in June 1918. After the Armistice a large number of graves were brought into the cemetery from small graveyards and isolated positions on the north, west and south of Villers-Bretonneux. 955 Commonwealth soldiers of World War 1 are buried or commemorated in this cemetery. Many of these were from Australia.
