This cemetary is easy to access and includes the final resting place of a British soldier aged just 15.
That should be a reason to bring young people from the UK and other countries to this place.

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,
