Secqueville-en-Bessin War Cemetery is located off the D83. It's location can outsmart some sat-navs so we recommend going to the village of Secqueville and then following the normal Commonwealth War Graves Commission green signs. The cemetery is situated along a narrow track. Parking is limited and also tricky due to embedded obstructions in the ground and ditches. Turning a car can also be difficult due to the narrow width of the track.

The cemetery itself is slightly L-shaped and quite small with just 117 graves. The cemetery began near a field operating theatre and was originally somewhat larger. Canadian troops which were buried here were later reinterred at Reviers.

The majority of the graves belong to members of the 15th (Scottish) and 43rd (Wessex) Divisions. In total there are 99 Commonwealth and 18 German burials.
