Koorbeek-Dijle is a small village 30 kilometres east of Brussels and 8 kilometres south-west of Leuven. It lies astride the Leuven-Oberijse road. The churchyard lies about 360 metres east of the main road, and the Commonwealth grave is on the west side of the church, close to the boundary wall.
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. Korbeek-Dijle Churchyard contains one Commonwealth burial of the Second World War.
