The cemetery was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
L/Cpl Fox was executed by his own side for desertion on 20 April 1915. He was 20 years old. He had been fired on while on patrol, his company swimming a canal to regroup. They were sent back to retrieve their abandoned bicycles, but Fox did not return - his bicycle was unusable and he was unable to find his unit. He was found in February 1915 but gave false details, fearful of being shot for desertion despite having no control over his original disappearance. The court martial took this into account, but senior officers overruled them.
