      Commemorative Information

      Cemetery:
      LIJSSENTHOEK MILITARY CEMETERY, Poperinge, West-Vlaanderen,
      Belgium
      Grave Reference/
      Panel Number:
      XX. H. 5A.
      Location:
      Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery is located 11.5 kilometres west of
      Ieper town centre, on the Boescheepseweg, a road leading from the
      N308 connecting Ieper to Poperinge. From Ieper town centre the
      Poperingseweg (N308) is reached via Elverdingsestraat, then over
      two small roundabouts in the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is
      a continuation of the J. Capronstraat and begins after a prominent
      railway level crossing. On reaching Poperinge, the N308 joins the left
      hand turning onto the R33, Poperinge ring road. The R33 ring
      continues to the left hand junction with the N38 Frans-
      Vlaanderenweg. 800 metres along the N38 lies the left hand turning
      onto Lenestraat. The next immediate right hand turning leads onto
      Boescheepseweg. The cemetery itself is located 1.5 kilometres along
      Boescheepseweg on the right hand side of the road. From Calais,
      take the motorway A16 signposted Dunkerque/Lille. At Dunkerque
      take the motorway signposted Lille/Ypres, the A25. Leave the
      motorway at Junction 13, the village of Steenvoorde. Follow the
      D948/N38 signposted Ieper/Poperinge. After approximately 8-10
      kilometres Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery will be signposted off to the
      right. Please Note: Ypres/ Ieper are the same place: Ypres (French
      spelling), Ieper (Flemish spelling) Commission signposts are green and
      white

      Historical
      Information:
      The Hazebrouck-Poperinghe railway line and the Poperinghe-Ypres
      road formed the main communication between the bases and the
      Flemish battlefields, and Lijssenthoek, lying close behind the extreme
      range of enemy shell-fire, was a natural position for clearing
      hospitals. It was first used by the French 15th Hopital D'Evacuation.
      In June, 1915, it began to be used by British Casualty Clearing
      Stations; and between that month and the Armistice it became the
      second greatest British War Cemetery. From April to August, 1918,
      the Casualty Clearing Stations fell back before the German advance,
      and Field Ambulances (including a French Ambulance) took their
      places; and the French graves in Plots XXVI, XXVII, and XXXI
      recalled the French regiments that were sent to Flanders at that
      time. Twenty-four British graves in Plot XXXI were brought from
      isolated positions near Poperinghe after the Armistice. There are now
      nearly 10,000, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site.
