The cemetery is located to the North-East of the town of Ieper (or Ypres).

Potijze was within the Allied lines during practically the whole of the First Word War and although subject to incessant shell fire, Potijze Chateau contained an Advanced Dressing Station. Potijze Burial Ground Cemetery was used from April 1915 to October 1918.

There are now 584 Commonwealth burials of the First World War within the cemetery, only one being unidentified.

The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
