Originally this battlefield cemetery had only 343 graves but it was enlarged after Armistice. It is now the largest Commonwealth war cemetery in the world in terms of burials, about 12000.

On Tyne Cot Memorial there are about 35000 names of soldiers whose graves are not known and who died between August 1917 and the end of the war.
