From Ieper town centre the Rijselsestraat runs from the market square, through the Lille Gate (Rijselpoort) and directly over the crossroads with the Ieper ring road. The road name then changes to the Rijselseweg. On reaching Mesen the first right hand turn leads onto Nieuwekerkestraat towards the village of Wulvergem. In the village of Wulvergem the first left hand turning leads onto Ploegsteertstraat. 200 metres along Ploegsteertstraat on the left hand side of the road lies the cemetery.
