This is the best cemetery in my opinion on the battlefield. Whilst it is located next to the Lille Gate you can sit and reflect on what happened overlooking the moat

Situated on the ramparts about a kilometre from the Menin Gate this cemetery leads down to the banks of the moat which surrounds part of the town. The flowers and shrubs were absolutely stunning this June and this is well worth the walk a walk around the ramparts or through the town to see it.

This is a small cemetary and like all the Commonwealth War Graves is immaculately tended. Such a tranquil location - so moving.

It is well worth taking a walk around the ramparts - we accessed them from the slope next to the Menin Gate. After the Peace garden and a riverside stroll you reach this cemetery set on the banks of the river. Beautifully kept, serene yet moving. Continue on towards the little island in the river where there is a cafe/restaurant... More

Visiting the graves of all those who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of their descendents is a most hubmling and emotional experience. All the thousands of live lost, but the way that they are cared for is a credit to all concerned. Well done.

This cemetery is located within the ramparts of the old walled defences of Ypres and can be reached by a pleasant stroll atop these ramparts by starting at The Menin Gate. After visiting you can then walk back to the Cloth Hall and Town Square through the streets as approached from the Lille Gate.

Very quiet, very well maintained, at the other end of Ypres to the Menin Gate. Take a shady stroll round the city wall from the Menin Gate, the wall itself is interesting in its own right. The cemetery is small by WW1 standards, has some interesting headstones, including one for a Captian Charles Montgomery. Could this be the same family?
