A small cemetery for German prisoners of war formerly existed on a triangular plot of land on the north east side of the Shrewsbury to Chester Railway in the vicinity of the Park Hall Camp. The camp was largely used for training Allied soldiers during World War 1 but also contained a German POW Camp and a Prisoner Of War Hospital. The cemetery contained the remains of 105 German soldiers and 4 German sailors. They were all exhumed and interred at the Cannock Chase German Military Cemetery in 1961. The site of the cemetery is now part of a large arable field.
