The town of Nijmegen is 16 km south of Arnhem.
Jonkersbos War cemetery is 4 km south west of Nijmegen, and 1km south of the main Grave-Nijmegen road.
Following the A73 exit at the junction Nijmegen Wijchen, follow the directions to Nijmegen along the A32b,
entering Nijmegen on the Graafseweg.
On reaching the Industrieterrein, a Commission signpost directs visitors to turn left onto the Weg Door Jonkersbos.
Shortly after appears a further signpost showing the left hand turning onto Oude Mollenhutseweg.
The cemetery is located 150 meters onward after entering the Oude Mollenhutseweg,
on the right hand side of the road.
Nijmegen was a front line town from 17th September 1944, until February 1945.
The cemetery is in a wooded area known as Jonkers Bosch from which it took its name,
and was created by No. 3 Casualty Clearing station.
18 soldiers from the United Kingdom were buried in adjoining graves which could not be individually identified,
and are commemorated by special memorials inscribed "Buried near this spot".
Two other special memorials record the names of two United Kingdom soldiers,
known to have been buried in the cemetery whose graves could not be found.
