Givenchy Road Canadian Cemetery is a Commonwealth War Graves Commission burial ground for the dead of World War I situated on the grounds of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial Park near the French town of Neuville-Saint-Vaast.
The cemetery was originally established as a battlefield cemetery by the Canadian Corps and named CD 1. The cemetery covers an area of 849 square meters and was enclosed by a rubble wall. Although only being 250 meters from the nearby Canadian Cemetery No. 2, it was not incorporated into the cemetery like many other battlefield cemeteries created at the time.
