Immediately after the train station, the first right hand turning is the Dikkebusseweg. On reaching the village of Dikkebus, the cemetery is located on the Kerkstraat, which is a small street turning left of the Dikkebusseweg. 200 metres along this street, and just beyond the village church on the left, is a street called Neerplaats.
