Hospital Farm Cemetery


Hospital Farm Cemetery is located 6.5 km west of Ieper town centre, on the Hospitaalstraat, a road leading from the N308 connecting Ieper to Poperinge. From Ieper town centre the Poperingseweg (N308), is reached via Elverdingsestraat then directly over two small roundabouts in the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is a continuation of the J. Capronstraat and begins after a prominent railway level crossing. 4 km along the N308, in the village of Vlamertinge just beyond the church, lies the right hand turning onto Hospitaalstraat. The cemetery itself is located 2.5 km after this turning on the left hand side of the road. Visitors should note that access to the site is via a field often used by livestock and is unsuitable for vehicles and wheelchairs.
