Location:

Mazingarbe is a small town located in the Pas-de-Calais between the larger towns of Lens and Bethune. The War Graves are to be found in two parts of the Communal Cemetery and, as with all town cemeteries, opening hours must be observed. The Communal Cemetery is located on the south-west side of the town. MAZINGARBE COMMUNAL CEMETERY AND EXTENSION can be reached from two major roads - the D937, Arras to Bethune road, and the N43, Lens to Bethune road. The Communal Cemetery is situated adjacent to the Sains-en-Gohelle road from Mazingarbe on the D75. Access to the Cemetery and parking is best obtained by taking a small side street off the D75, but it should be noted that a one-way system is permanently in operation in Mazingarbe town. There are signposts visible in the centre of Mazingarbe town and on the D75 road.
