From Ieper town centre the Poperingseweg (N308), is reached via Elverdingsestraat then directly over two small roundabouts in the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is a continuation of the J.

Shortly after leaving the village of Roesbrugge lies the right hand turning onto the N364 Roesbruggestraat. 3.5 km along the N364 lies the village of Beveren-Ijzer. The cemetery is located next to the church on the Sint Brigida-plein.
