Location Information

The town of Sezanne is approximately 100 kilometres east of Paris on the main road to Nancy and about 60 kilometres south of Reims.

The town of Sezanne is best reached from either direction of the N4 road, by turning onto the RD51, following signs for Sezanne. After about five hundred metres turn right again following the same signs. At a road junction with traffic lights turn right following the signs for centre ville and Epernay, continue through the town centre until a right turn signposted Broyes and Vertus (rue de Broyes). After a short distance take a left fork in the road also signposted Broyes and Vertus, at the next road junction it is necessary to continue straight over again following the signs for Broyes and Vertus. After a short distance the cemetery can be found on the left side of the road. The CWGC plot is located to the rear of the civil cemetery.
