Address: 1 Le Bois Du Sart, 80131, Morcourt, France.
(This cemetery is often stated as situated in Harbonnieres; its actual location is halfway between the two towns on the D1029.
Heath Cemetery, so called from the wide expanse of open country on which it stands, was made after the Armistice, on the East side of a French Military Cemetery (now removed).
The earliest date of death is in September, 1915, the latest in October, 1918; the majority fell in March (German Spring Offensive) or August (the Allies "One Hundred Days" offensive), in 1918.
There are now 1,860 Commonwealth servicemen of WWI (1914-18) buried or commemorated in this cemetery.
Of these, nearly 400 are unidentified and special memorials are erected to 24 Australian soldiers and two from the United Kingdom, known or believed to be buried among them.
Other special memorials record the names of 19 soldiers from the United Kingdom and two from Australia, buried in other cemeteries, whose graves could not be found.
Certain graves in Plots VIII and X, identified as a whole but not individually, are marked by headstones bearing the additional words: "Buried near this spot".
