Location Information

Roscanvel is an awkwardly situated village and commune some 49 kilometres north-west of Quimper and 36 kilometres north-west of Chateaulin. The village is on the coast of the Rade de Brest, on a road which turns off the Chateaulin Camaret road at Crozon. It is most conveniently reached by taxi from Quimper. The cemetery is on the western side of a third-class road leading from the church, and is about 200 yards from that church. In the south-western corner, west of the memorial, are the graves of six airmen of the Royal Air Force.
