One of many immaculately maintained WW1 cemeteries in the Flanders area. Perhaps so well visited due to it’s proximity to the John McCrae site and the grave of English lad Valentine Joe Strudwick. This boy enlisted at the age of 14 years and was killed...More

The best way to visit Essex Farm is by car as it is very accessible, all the CWGC cemeteries are free to visit, and are open everyday of the year. the theory that you need a tour guide to visit these places is a myth, all you need is to research and read books, I would also advise on purchasing old first world war trench maps on Ebay, you can then match it up with the present roads, but more than likely the roads haven't changed at all, if you study well in advance you won't struggle and you will find it very rewarding too,
