Guillemont Road and the nearby Trones Wood were among the British objectives of the great assault of July 1, 1916. Cemeteries and monuments to large units are nearby, but Guillemont also provides many examples of personal tragedy, such as the deaths of the eldest son of Britain's wartime prime minister and the grandson of Charles Dickens.
