Epe is a small town about 14 kilometres (8 1/2 miles) north of Apeldoorn, on the main road to Zwolle. There is good accommodation in Epe, but the most convenient railway station is Apeldoorn whence the bus service to Zwolle passes through Epe.
The cemetery is on the western outskirts of the town, on the southern side of the road to Nunspeet. In its south-western corner are the graves of 21 airmen, fourteen of whom came from the United Kingdom, five from Canada and two from New Zealand.
