The village consists of two distinct groups of houses about half a mile apart known respectively as Lorgies (Chef Lieu) and Lorgies (Bourg), the Chef Lieu being north of the Bourg. The communal cemetery is about 200 yards south of the church, which is at Lorgies (Chef Lieu) on the D.168 road to Lorgies (Bourg).
