Essex Farm

Essex Farm was the location of an advanced dressing station and is now the site of a CWGC cemetery. As well as the cemetery the remains of several bunkers can still be seen, some of which were used by the dressing station. There are 1,200 soldiers buried or commemorated in this cemetery, of which 103 are not identified. One of the youngest British casualties is also buried here, Rifleman Valentine Joe Strudwick, who was only 15 years of age when he died on the 14th January 1916.
