The Cabaret Rouge Cemetery is one of the most important Commonwealth cemeteries in the region. It contains 7 665 graves of Commonwealth soldiers. Established by the English from 1916 onwards, it owes its name to the presence nearby of a café called the "Cabaret Rouge". It was from this cemetery that the body of the “unknown Canadian soldier” was exhumed, which now rests symbolically in front of the Canadian National War Memorial in Ottawa.
