On arriving in the village the first exit at the roundabout must be taken, the D925 in the direction of Soissons. Shortly after taking this road it is necessary to take a small left turn, followed shortly by a further left turn. At this point the entrance to the cemetery can be seen. When approaching the cemetery from the D925 the above directions apply. The Communal Cemetery is located in the centre of the town, and the Commonwealth War Graves Plot is positioned in the centre of the cemetery. There is no restricted access to the cemetery.
