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, (N365). On reaching the village of Mesen the first right hand turning leads onto Nieuwkerkestraat, towards Wulvergem. On reaching the village of Wulvergem the first right hand turning at the church leads onto Vrooilandstraat. 500 metres along this road lies the junction with Wulvergemstraat. The cemetery itself lies 500 metres beyond this junction on the left hand side of the Wulvergemstraat.
