On 3 October 1918, the 1st King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry captured Prospect Hill, after Le Catelet and Gouy had been taken by the 50th (Northumbrian) Division, the 6th Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and the 4th King's Royal Rifle Corps. The cemetery was made by the 50th Division and the 18th Field Ambulance immediately after. Plot I formed the original cemetery but this was increased after the Armistice when graves were brought in, mainly from the battlefields north of Gouy, and almost exclusively of men who died in October 1918.
