MOULINS NEW COMMUNAL CEMETERY
UK - 10
This was a cemetery used by British units during the fighting on the Aisne in September 1914. Five special memorials represent graves which cannot now be identified on the ground.
Moulins is a small village situated 16 kilometres
south of Laon and 13 kilometres north of Fismes, within the Department of the
Aisne, Northern France. From Reims take the N44 towards Laon. Passing the French
Military Cemetery at Cormicy on the left, shortly followed by the CWGC cemetery
of La Ville aux Bois, continue along this road for about 22 kilometres until the
village of Corbeny is reached. Take the left hand turning next to the church and
go along the D18, "Chemin des Dames", for 14 kilometres until you
reach the crossroads at Cerny en Laonnais. Turn left towards Fismes along the
D967, passing Vendresse British Cemetery on the right. Take the first left hand
turning after passing the cemetery, signposted "Moulins". As you enter
the village turn sharp left and the cemetery is facing you about 100 metres up a
short track. The 4 plots of war graves are all in the far north-eastern corner
of the cemetery.
