The Lyssenthoek Cemetery was known as the Remy Siding (the siding at Remy Quaeghebeur). In those years it was a hospital that was consecutively in the hands of the French – the British – the Canadians - the Australians and finally the French again. 320,000 wounded soldiers were treated at the hospital, 10.835 victims are buried at the graveyard where casualties of nearly every battle in the 4 year war can be found.
