Marseilles is the chief town in the Department of the Bouches-du-Rhone. Mazargues is a southern suburb (the 9th Arrondissement), some 6 kilometres from the centre of Marseilles. The cemetery is located 200 metres south of the 'Rond-Point de Mazargues' on the main road (the D559) to Toulon via Cassis. The address of the cemetery is No. 24 Avenue General de Lattre de Tassigny.

Marseilles was the base for Indian troops in France during the 1914-18 war; and throughout the War the Royal Navy, the Merchant Navy, British troops and Labour units worked in the port or passed through it. Five of the town cemeteries were used, in the main, for the burial of officers and men of the Commonwealth forces who died at Marseilles: St. Pierre Cemetery, where bodies of Hindu soldiers and labourers were cremated in 1914-16; Le Canet Old Cemetery and Le Canet New Cemetery, where Indian soldiers and Indian, Egyptian and Chinese labourers were buried in 1917-19; Port St. Louis- du-Rhone Communal Cemetery, and Mazargues Cemetery, where remains from the others were consolidated after the Armistice.

There are now 1487 World War I and 267 World War II casualties commemorated in this site. The cemetery covers an of 9021 square metres.
