The Sailly-sur-la-Lys Canadian Cemetery is about 2 kilometres south-west of the village of Sailly-sur-la-Lys, directly on the left hand side of the road opposite the Anzac Cemetery. The village of Sailly-sur-la-Lys is approximately 7 kilometres west of Armentieres. From Armentieres follow the road to Estaires, traversing the small town of Ergingham Lys and then joining the D945 to Estaires. Follow the D945 for approximately 5 kilometres until reaching the village of Sailly-sur-la-Lys then continue through the village on the same road for about 2 kilometres. The Canadian Cemetery was made in an orchard, among old trenches, at a point long known as Cemetery Post. It is enclosed by a rubble wall and a hedge of flowering shrubs, and planted with maples, pink thorns and other trees. The cemetery was begun by Canadian units in March, 1915 and used as a front-line cemetery until July, 1916.
