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