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

Ypres Ramparts Cemetery is best visited after spending sometime at the Menin Gate with its list of nearly 55,000 war dead with no grave. Wander south - past the memorial to the contribution of Sikh and Gurkha soldiers during the First World War in the Ypres Salient, continue round the ramparts that date from many eras, evolving from the early...

This smaller cemetery is located off the main tourist track but worth a visit. It is located next to the moat and is designed so the graves overlook the water. Well worth the 15 minute walk from the main square.

You can park nearby (outside the pub that has a monthly meeting regarding WW1 tanks for those that are interested) and stroll to the cemetery that is very well maintained and honours those who fell in battle. Worth a visit.

As we were in Ypres for the 100th anniversary at the Menin gate, we decided to have a walk along the medieval ramparts on what was a beautiful day, to the little cemetery which sits behind the walled ramparts overlooking the moat. And what struck me was the setting, it's not too big in comparison to other commonwealth cemeteries but... More

One of the men of our Project (www.ww1remembrance.com) is buried in Ramparts Cemetery, and has a fantastic view out over the moat. Normally quiet, this is a stunning location, a very well kept cemetery and just beautiful.

Well tended and cared for war grave cemetery on the water's edge. There's a Visitors Register in place where you can add your name and comments for others to see. You'll spot this place quite easily as you perambulate the ramparts.

As with all the Commonwealth cemetarys, every one different. This one is on the top of the medieval ramparts adjacent to the Lille Gate and Moat. Include it in a walk around the town

Another perfectly maintained war cemetery. Only a small local one but just as meaningful as all the others.There are too many of these around Belgium to not visit them and pay your respects.
