Hottot-les-Bagues War Cemetery is located along the D9 between Hottot-les-Bagues and Juvigny. There is a large paved lay-by offering decent car parking, but there are some steps to negotiate when accessing the Cemetery. The Cemetery is laid out on two levels with a set of steps or a steep grass bank linking them.

Most of the casualties buried in the Cemetery were killed in the latter half of June in the fighting around Tilly-sur-Suelles. Those buried here include Canadian officers attached to British units, Scots Guards, Duke of Wellington Regiment, Hampshire Regiment and the Parachute Regiment. Two Brigadiers are also interred here - one from the Seaforth Highlanders and the other from the New Zealand Infantry.

The cemetery contains 1,005 Commonwealth burials, 56 of them unidentified, and 132 German graves. There are 21 Special Memorials within the above, bearing the inscription "Buried near this spot"
