The preparations for the Somme offensive of 7|1916 brought a group of CCS (1st/1st South Midland, 21st 34th 45th & Lucknow section B) to Daours. The extension to the communal cemetery was opened & the first burials made in Plots I II Row A of Plot III & the Indian plot between 6-11|1916. The Allied advance in the spring of 1917 took the hospitals with it & no further burials were made here until 4|1918. From April to the middle of August 1918, the extension was almost a front line cemetery.
