The railway line runs South of the A19 motorway; North of the A19 between Ieper and Kortrijk you have Tyne Cot and Polygon Wood Cemeteries, in Zonnebeke, with Passchendaele New British Cemetery and Poelcapelle British Cemetery "above" those.

Stations on the railway line in question are : Ieper - Comines/Komen - Wervik - Menen - Wevelgem - Bissegem - Kortrijk.

Following the tracks out of Ieper, on the right-hand (Southern) side you have first Bedford House Cemetery then Spoilbank Cemetery then Hedge Row Trench Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery (and a lot further South, Messines Ridge British Cemetery), then nothing apart from a civil cemetery (Ston) and German military cemetery in Menen and another civil cemetery in Wevelgem. Hartebeke New British Cemetery is in Harelbeke, just beyond Kortrijk.

If you google WWI cemeteries kortrijk (or ieper), you can move around the map.
