LARCH WOOD (RAILWAY CUTTING) CEMETERY is located 4 Km south east of Ieper town centre, on the Komenseweg, connecting Ieper to Komen (N366). From Ieper town centre the Komenseweg is located via the Rijselsestraat, through the Rijselpoort (Lille Gate) and crossing the Ieper ring road, towards Armentieres and Lille. The road name then changes to Rijselseweg. 1 Km along the Rijselseweg lies the left hand turning onto Komenseweg. About 2.7 Km along the Komenseweg lies the left hand turning onto the cemetery, which is located 400 metres along a rough single tracked road to an ungated railway crossing, immediately adjacent to the site.

  • Photo of Horace Gore– This is a portrait of my great uncle Horace Victor Gore.
  • Grave Marker– In May 2002 I travelled to Ieper (Ypres), Belgium to locate my great uncle Horace Victor Gore's grave. It is in the Larchwood Cemetery, 4 km south east of Ieper town centre. This is the image I took of his grave stone. It meant a great deal to me to be able to locate and visit his grave. I would like to share this image with all his surviving family members who have never been able to make the trip to visit his grave.
