Location Information

Frederikshavn is a major port in northern Jutland, about 32 kilometres from the northernmost point of Denmark. From the road 40, direction Skagen, turn left onto the 35 along Norregade in the direction of Hjorring, and then first right into Gammel Skagensvej. From the third entrance on the right in Skagensvej (marked with a green sign) take the path to the left to the boundary wall and follow the wall towards the north-east corner of the cemetery until the Cross of Sacrifice in the Commonwealth Second World War Plot comes into sight. From this Plot, the First World War Commonwealth war graves may be found by proceeding through the German War Graves Plot towards the opposite boundary after taking the path in line with the Cross of Sacrifice. The four granite headstones and private memorial will be located approximately 50 metres beyond the German Plot.
