"Stiué entre Caen et Caumont-l'Eventé, il y a 1137 tombes dans ce cimetière militaire britannique.
La plupart des soldats enterrés ici ont été amenés des villes alentours et sont morts pendant les lourds combats de juin et juillet 1944 pour prendre Bayeux et encercler Caen.
Ce cimetière fait partie du circuit "l'Affrontement" qui part depuis le mémorial de Caen"

Historical Information
The Allied offensive in north-western Europe began with the Normandy landings of 6 June 1944.
Most of the burials in Hottot-les-Bagues War Cemetery were brought in from the surrounding district, where there was much heavy fighting through June and July 1944 as Commonwealth forces tried to press on from Bayeux in an encircling movement to the south of Caen.
The cemetery contains 1,005 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 56 of them unidentified, and 132 German graves.
There are 21 Special Memorials within the above, bearing the inscription "Buried near this spot"
