Cemetery Details

Location Ieper (Ypres), Provincie West-Vlaanderen (West Flanders) - Flanders, Belgium
Co‑ordinates N50.8642353, E2.9308938
Description

Named for the wreck of an aircraft that was located here when the cemetery was established. Like many others it is a concentration cemetery with burials from other locations brought here after the Armistice - see the CWGC site for full details.

Aeroplane Cemetery is located 3.5 kilometres north east of Ieper town centre on the Zonnebeekseweg (N332), a road connecting Ieper to Zonnebeke. Two roads connect Ieper town centre onto the Zonnebeekseweg; the Torhoutstraat leads from the market square onto a small roundabout. At the roundabout the first right turn is Basculestraat. At the end of Basculestraat there is a crossroads and Zonnebeekseweg is the turning to the left. The cemetery itself lies 3 kilometres along the Zonnebeekseweg on the right hand side of the road, shortly after a French cemetery.
