We visited this cemetery as a pilgrimage to a lost soldier who was a relative of one of our members.
And to be honest this was probably the second most moving of all the cemeteries we visited, beaten only by Tyne Cot.

Take a taxi from Albert. I had one to Butte de Warlencourt which cost 30 euros then walked back to Albert along the D929 (Albert/Bapaume road). This was a whole day's excursion but there are a lot of things along that road. I don't recommend this walk unless you seriously like walking on grassy verges while huge lorries thunder past all day but you will feel you've achieved something. There are no buses. The taxi office in Albert will give you a price for an excursion and pick you up/drop you off at Albert station. The company I used was Albert taxis but I wouldn't expect much change out of 60 euros and it might even be more than that. To the second part of your question, I've never known a cemetery to be closed. Museums usually have at least one day per week closed and some close for lunch too.
