Location:

MENDINGHEM MILITARY CEMETERY is located 17 Km north west of Ieper town centre on the N308 connecting Ieper to Poperinge and on to Oostcappel. From Ieper town centre the Poperingseweg (N308), is reached via Elverdingsestraat then directly over two small roundabouts in the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is a continuation of the J. Capronstraat and begins after a prominent railway level crossing. On reaching the ring road of Poperinge R33 Europalaan, the left hand clockwise route circles the town of Poperinge and rejoins the N308 towards Oost Cappel. 6.5 Km after joining the N308 lies the village of Proven. The MENDINGHEM MILITARY CEMETERY is located 500 metres beyond the village of Proven on the left hand side of the road (which at this point is called Roesbruggestraat). Visitors to this site should note a 200 metre gravelled access road to this site which is suitable for small vehicles.
