Roulers Communal Cemetery is located 20 Km north east of Ieper
town centre via the villages of Zonnebeke and Moorslede (N332).
Roeselare is approached via the Iepersestraat and crosses the
R32 Roeselare ring road. Prior to reaching the town centre lies
the left hand turning onto the Molenstraat, which continues for
80 metres to the junction with Blekerijstraat. The cemetery is
located after the first left hand turning of the the Blekerijstraat.
Roulers (now Roeselare) was occupied by the Germans from October
1914 to October 1918. The Communal Cemetery was used by them
for the burial of prisoners of war during this period. There
are now separate Belgian, French and Commonwealth plots in this
cemetery. Three graves were added here in 1936, when they were
brought in from churchyards at Hooghlede and Knocke.
