The cemetery grounds were assigned to the United Kingdom in perpetuity by King Albert I of Belgium in recognition of the sacrifices made by the British Empire in the defence and liberation of Belgium during the war.[1] Contents 1 Foundation 2 Notable graves 3 References 4 External links // Foundation The cemetery was founded by Commonwealth troops in March 1915 and remained in use until April 1918.[2] After the Armistice in November 1918, the cemetery was enlarged by concentrating graves from eight outlying cemeteries.[2] The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield[2] who was also responsible for the nearby Menin Gate memorial.[3] Notable graves The grave of Robert Morrow VC The cemetery contains the graves of some 1,163 soldiers of the Great War. Amongst these are the graves of four men executed by the Commonwealth military authorities - Private HH Chase of the Lancashire Fusiliers, executed for cowardice on 12 June 1915; Private WJ Turpie of the Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment, executed for desertion on 1 July 1915; and Privates RW Gawler and AE Eveleigh of The Buffs (East Kent Regiment), executed for desertion 24 February 1916.[4] Private Turpie reached the United Kingdom about a month after deserting. He was apprehended by the police and confessed to being a deserter. Brought back to the Front, he was convicted at a court martial and subsequently executed.[5] On 7 November 2006, the British government reversed its previous decision and announced a pardon for all soldiers executed in the Great War.[6] Also buried at this cemetery is Victoria Cross-holder Private Robert Morrow of the Royal Irish Fusiliers.[4] References ^ First World War, accessed 19 August 2006 ^ a b c Commonwealth War Graves Commission accessed 1 October 2006 ^, accessed 1 October 2007 ^ a b, accessed 1 October 2007 ^ Putkowski, JJ Shot at Dawn Campaign website on Turpie's trial, accessed 1 October 2007 ^ Shot at Dawn Campaign website, accessed 1 October 2007 External links CWGC cemetery register: Details • Reports • Plans • Photographs v • d • e Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries in Ieper municipality, Belgium Artillery Wood • Bedford House • Blauwepoort Farm • Brandhoek Military · New · No 3 • Buffs Road • Chester Farm • Dickebusch New · Old • Divisional Collecting Post • Divisional • Duhallow ADS • Elzenwalle Brasserie • First DCLI, The Bluff • Hedge Row Trench • Hooge Crater • La Belle Alliance • La Brique • Larch Wood (Railway Cutting) • Menin Road South • New Irish Farm • Oxford Road • Perth (China Wall) • Potijze Burial Ground · Château Lawn and Grounds · Château Wood • RE Grave Railway Wood • Railway Chateau • Ramparts (Lille Gate) • Ridge Wood • Spoilbank • Track "X" • Tuileries • Voormezeele Enclosures • White House • Wieltje Farm • Woods • Ypres Reservoir • Ypres Town • Zillebeke Churchyard
