The Cross of Sacrifice, designed by Blomfield, is common to most smaller cemeteries.

Dainville is a small cemetery located on the outskirts of a village near Arras, a tranquil setting with poppies flowering in the adjacent fields.

The photograph above shows that it was visited by Salvation Army personnel on War Graves Service, probably from their base in Arras.

More details about Dainville from a subsequent visit.
