Antwerp lies 57 Km north of Brussels on the E19 and 59 km north east of Gent on the E17 motorway. The cemetery itself is located in Wilrijk, a suburb of Antwerp.

Turn right and follow the ring road for 100 M to the first set of traffic lights and turn left. Go under the flyover and continue straight on over the dual carrageway into Jules Moretus Lei. Follow this street for 1 kilometre and the entrance to the Municipal Cemetery is on your left. After entering the cemetery follow the Commission signs to the three Commission plots at the far end of the cemetery. Alternatively ask for their location at the office within the cemetery.

  • Letter– My uncle wrote home to my mom Mary Cahill and his family in March 1943. I have attached the 1st of a 4 page letter where he talks about general life, but where he tells them a story of their plane having trouble during a routine exercise called a " Bulls-eye" and how they survived the plane crash.  It is really the only story that I have and I have the original copy. Would anyone be interested in this .... Maybe for museum or??   Please let me know.
