A new memorial to the war dead has been opened at Ablain-St-Nazaire, where the French cemetery of Notre Dame de Lorette is situated.

What is different about this memorial is that it has all the names of those who died in Nord Pas de Calais region on all sides. The 576,606 names are all in alphabetical surname order regardless of nationality and rank. The names are inscribed 1200 to each of 500 bronze panels, facing inwards.
