During a walk, starting at the Menin Poort, we passed this little cemetery. Like all cemeteries in and around Ypres, it was very well maintained with beautiful flowers and presented a peaceful setting at the water.

This small cemetery by the Lille gate is definitely worth a visit. It is small and peaceful with a register that tells you a little about those buried there. A poignant example of the scale of the Great War.

This cemetery is located in a beautiful spot over looking the river. It is very nice to visit and as all these sad places they are kept so beautiful. Flowers pretty and lawns manicured.

This cemetery is in the most amazing setting overlooking the water. We were here to visit the grave of my husbands Great Uncle Alexander Trotter (Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry) who is buried here

A small and peaceful cemetery in the ramparts by the moat. Only small but most of the bodies were not recovered.

Ramparts cemetery is the smallest one of the cemeteries I visited during my stay in Ypres. It is located directly in the town, just about 15 minutes of walking from the Menin Gate therefore it is not as quiet and solemn as the other ones...More
