Fayid is a town, 20 kilometres south of Ismailia on the western shore of the Great Bitter Lake, which is at the mid point of the Suez canal. The FAYID WAR CEMETERY is on the south side of the town, approximately 4 kilometres from its centre and on a connecting road between the lakeshore and the main Ismailia - Suez road. All visitors are advised to use a private car or taxi. Those using the main road from either Suez or Ismailia will find a dressed stone obelisk feature offset at the junction of the connecting road. The railway line, 200 metres beyond, and main sweet water canal, 500 metres further on, are crossed before arrival at the cemetery which is approximately 1kilometre from the road junction. Those visitors using the road alongside the Suez canal and thereafter that skirts the Great Bitter Lake will reach the end of the connecting road approximately 6 kilometres south of the small roundabout at a main junction of the road into Fayid town centre. The east end of the connecting road is directly opposite a red and white painted police checkpoint. The cemetery is approximately 200 metres from the junction on the right.
