The Bac-Du-Sud British Cemetery is a cemetery in the Pad de Calais region of France containing the graves of Canadians killed during the Great War.


The cemetery was made in March 1918 by the 7th, 20th and 43rd Casualty Clearing Stations, but when the German advance began at the end of that month, their place was taken by field ambulances of the units fighting on the Arras front, notably the 31st Division and the Canadian Corps. In August and September, when the Germans had been pushed back, the 45th and 46th Casualty Clearing Stations were posted to the neighbourhood.

Bac-du-Sud British Cemetery contains 688 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. There are also 55 German war graves.


Bailleulval is a village in the Department of the Pas-de-Calais about 13 Kms south-west of Arras, and the Cemetery is 1 Km west of the village on the north side of the main road from Arras to Doullens (N25).
