Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery is today the most significant witness to the more than four years of violent warfare in the Ypres Salient. With a view to establishing an visitors' centre we are trying to collect the personal stories of those who lie there.

Do you know any of these men or are you in the possession of any of their personal documents? (letters, photos, objects, diaries, ...)

If so, please get in touch!
