The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has recorded the reburial of 250 British and Australian soldiers at the Fromelles (Pheasant Wood) Military Cemetary in France.

The soldiers' remains had been discovered in mass graves near the battle site in 2008 and were reburied with full military honours in 2010.
