Ors British Cemetery was begun in November 1918. It was enlarged after the Armistice when graves were brough in from Chateau Seydoux British Cemetery, Le Cateau, Flaumont Churchyard, Jenlain Churhcyard and St. Python Communal Cemetery. The cemetery contains 107 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, six of which are unidentified. A number of the Highland Light Infantry and Royal Engineers graves are due to the crossing of the canal near the cemetery on 4 November 1918.
