  • Valkenswaard is located 9 kilometres from the Dutch-Belgian border on the main road from Eindhoven to Hasselt in Belgium. The war cemetery is located 4 kilometers south of Valkenswaard. From the market square Valkenswaard, visitors can the traffic signs to Hasselt (N69) follow, and the war cemetery is located on the right side of the main road. Valkenswaard was the first village liberated in september 1944 by British ground army in operation Market Garden. The military cemetery, which in the Woods South of Valkenswaard is located, contains 220 graves, almost all men who are buried here, in heavy fighting cases around the woods of Valkenswaard for the month of september.
