Faubourg d’Amiens Cemetery

Attached to the Arras Memorial this cemetery contains just two Dublin Fusiliers burials and is located west of the town of Arras. The cemetery was begun in 1916 and was used primarily by field ambulances and some other units.  It contains over 2600 burials almost all of which are identified. Both of the Dublin Fusiliers buried here were members of the 1st Battalion died of wounds received in action, presumably in one of the aforementioned field ambulances. Private John McKee of Newry, a Gallipoli veteran, buried in Plot 5 died on 23 April 1917 and Private John Joseph Brewin of Leicester buried in Plot 4 died the following day.
