Burial Information

Grave Reference:

IV. B. 19.


WYTSCHAETE MILITARY CEMETERY is located 7 Km south of Ieper town centre, on a road leading from the Rijselseweg N365, which connects Ieper (formerly Ypres) to Wijtschate (Wytschaete) and on to Armentieres. From Ieper town centre the Rijselsestraat runs from the market square, through the Lille Gate (Rijselpoort) and directly over the crossroads with the Ieper ring road. The road name then changes to the Rijselseweg. The first right hand turning on reaching the village of Wijtschate leads onto the Hospicestraat, leading to the village square. The Kemmelstraat leads from the village square, 500 metres beyond which lies the WYTSCHAETE MILITARY CEMETERY on the right hand side of the road.
