Hellemmes-Lille is a town and commune to the east of Lille - a major town in the north of France. The Communal Cemetery is on the road to Ascq (coincidentally the Communal cemetery there contains the grave of an Australian aviator from WW1, LT Keith Swann).
From the church in Hellemmes head west on the Rue Fadherbe to the traffic lights and turn left onto Rue Roger Salengro. The cemetery is 400 metres on the left opposite a large Opel garage. The Commonwealth burials are in the middle of the Communal Cemetery.
Commonwealth burials on this site are all aircrew from three Lancaster bombers for Nos. 463, 467 Squadrons RAAF and No. 9 Squadron RAF, lost as part of a night bombing raid on the Lille / Fives industrial area and rail junction on the night of 10/11 May 1944. This raid was part of a wider campaign aimed at disrupting rail and road transportation in ordr to impede German reinforcement of the invasion zone for D Day - the location of which was kept secret until the morming of the landings (6 June 1944).
