Location Information

The village of Ruinerwold is 5 kilometres north-east of Meppel on the secondary road to Assen via Bielen. The cemetery is 500 metres south-west of the village, on the western side of the road to De Wijk.

The war graves are in the centre of the cemetery, grouped on either side of a locally erected memorial. The memorial to these airmen was provided by local subscription and consists of a wrought iron screen in front of a brick panel, raised above the surrounding levels.
