Hagle Dump Cemetery is 7.5 kilometres west of Ieper town centre on the Sint Pietersstraat, a road leading from the N308 Poperingseweg, connecting Ieper to Poperinge. From Ieper town centre the Poperingseweg (N308) is reached via Elverdingsestraat then directly over two small roundabouts in the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is a continuation of the J. Capronstraat and begins after a prominent railway level crossing. 6 kilometres along the Poperingseweg, after passing through the villages of Vlamertinge and Brandhoek, lies the right hand turning onto Galgestraat. 1 kilometre along the Galgestraat lies a staggered crossroads. The cemetery lies 300 metres after this crossroads on Sint Pietersstraat. Historical Information: Elverdinge was behind the Allied front line throughout the war, and Hospital Farm and Ferme-Olivier Cemeteries, both in the commune, were used in the earlier years for Commonwealth burials. The cemetery at Hagle Dump was begun in April 1918, during the Battles of Lys. It was used by fighting units and field ambulances until the following October and was enlarged after the Armistice when more than 200 graves were brought into Plots III and IV from the battlefields of the Ypres Salient. Brielen Military Cemetery, from which 20 graves were brought to Hagle Dump, was used from April 1915 to September 1917. Hagle Dump Cemetery contains 437 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 140 of which are unidentified. The cemetery was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
