Commemorative Information
Calais, France 
Grave Reference/Panel Number: III. A. 2. 
The town of Frevent is 39 kilometres west of Arras, 12 kilometres south of St 
Pol and 16 kilometres south-east of Hesdin. St Hilaire Cemetery and Extension is 
on the eastern side of the town on the south side of the secondary road to 
Sericourt (D54). 
Historical Information:  
Frevent was, from its position, a place of some importance on the Lines of 
Communication. It came into the British area for all purposes in March 1916. The 
43rd Casualty Clearing Station was posted there from April to June 1916; part of 
the Lucknow Casualty Clearing Station in June; the 6th Stationary Hospital from 
June 1916 to the end of August 1918; and the 3rd Canadian, 19th and 43rd 
Casualty Clearing Stations in the summer of 1918. The great majority of the 
burials in the Cemetery were carried out from these hospitals. During the 
1939-45 War the greater part of Frevent was destroyed by bombing. An aerial 
torpedo fell in the cemetery, which is near the railway line, damaging some of 
the graves; but the British plot was not affected. There are now over 200, 
1914-18 and over 10, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this cemetery.
