Location Information

Lyon is a large prefectoral town in the Department of Rhone. The La Guillotiere district of Lyon contains two cemeteries, an old and a new, which are located a few hundred metres apart. The Old and 'Ancien Cimetiere de la Guillotiere' is located to the east of the city centre just south of the large army barracks 'Caserne Sergent Blandan'. From the Gare de Perrache railway station, cross the river Rhone by the Pont Gallieni and continue down the Avenue Berthelot in the direction of Grenoble (A43). The Old Cemetery is on the left after approximately 2 kilometres and can be reached via the left hand turn into the Boulevard des Tchecoslovaques.
