Location Information

The community of Bevere is located north-west of the town of Oudenaarde on the N459. From the motorway E40/A10, which runs between Oostende and Brussels, turn off at junction 15 onto the N60, direction Oudenaarde. Follow this road to the junction with the N459, turn left here along Beverestraat and the cemetery is on the left about 500 metres from the junction. The graves are located in two separate plots and they are located at the far end of the path from the main entrance.

Historical Information

The British Expeditionary Force was involved in the later stages of the defence of Belgium following the German invasion in May 1940, and suffered many casualties in covering the withdrawal to Dunkirk.
