  • Sad to see so many young men laying there.
  • Valkenswaard ligt 9 kilometer van de Nederlands-Belgische grens op de hoofdweg van Eindhoven naar Hasselt in België. De oorlogsbegraafplaats ligt 4 kilometer ten zuiden van Valkenswaard. Vanuit het marktplein Valkenswaard, kunnen bezoekers de verkeersborden naar Hasselt (N69) volgen, en de oorlogsbegraafplaats ligt aan de rechterkant van de hoofdweg. Valkenswaard was het eerste dorp dat in september 1944 bevrijd werd door het Britse grondleger bij operatie Market Garden. De militaire begraafplaats, die in de bossen ten zuiden van Valkenswaard ligt, bevat 220 graven, bijna alle mannen die hier begraven liggen, zijn in hevige gevechten gevallen rond de bossen van Valkenswaard gedurende de maand september. Alle mannen die hier begraven zijn behoren tot het leger van Engeland.
