The Lesneven Communal Cemetery is a cemetery in France containing a few burials from early in the Second World War. The majority of the burials are from the period of the British Expeditionary Force's (BEF) time in France in 1939-40. The cemetery has one Canadian burial.


There are now over 10 Second World War casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, a small number are unidentified.
