Visited as part of a walk around the ramparts (excellent example of Vaudan fortifications). Discovered the cemetery by the old Meninpoorte. It's the usual well maintained CWWG site, but in an evocative setting by the water. Interesting collection of Maori soldiers buried here, together with engineers. Probably party of the Mine teams.

A wonderful location for the brave fallen. A small but beautifully kept Commonwealth Cemetery (as they all are), located on the rivers edge. Rest In Peace..

Interesting, if that is the tight word to use on this occasion. Poignant reminder of man's self destruction.

We went here on a lovely sunny day July 2014, we were about the only people there, it was quite and tranquil where you could look and think about the people who had died again to save us.

This is a tiny cemetery by the lakeside, but like all the others around the area it is always tidy, well kept and again so sad to see.

Come early in the morning and spend some time sitting gazing out at the water and reading the names on the tombs and bring a tissue

We walked around the rampart of Ypres before breakfast ending at the this small and tranquil cemetery. It is moving to see the groups of men who died within a few days of each other. Unlike th bigger cementries you can look at every grave so somehow it seemed more personal
