  • Beautiful Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery enclosed within the three walls of the Loos Memorial to the Missing. It stands in open farmland, about a kilometre west of Loos-en-Gohelle on the Bethune road. 1,812 men are buried here, only 684 of them identified. It is most likely that the names of the 1,128 unknowns are inscribed on one of the panels covering the three walls of the memorial surrounding the cemetery. The left hand tower, as you face the cemetery, includes steps leading up to a viewing platform. This gives you a wonderful view of the cemetery, the memorial and the surrounding countryside, including the imposing twin slagheaps (terrils in French) of Loos-en-Gohelle , which are the tallest in Europe.
