From Ieper town centre the Veurnseweg (N8), is reached via Elverdingsestraat, then turning right onto Haiglaan. Veurnseweg is a continuation of Haiglaan. 4 Km along the N8 Veurnseweg in the village of Elverdinge, lies the left hand turning onto the N333 Steentjesmolenstraat. 4.5 Km along this road lies the GWALIA CEMETERY on the right hand side of the road.
