Zuydcoote is a village in the Department of Nord about 10km north-east of Dunkirk, basically follow the coastal by-pass from Calais through Dunkirk and Zuydcoote is on the left before you reach Andikirke and Belgium.

One of the men I researched is buried there A. Hough (Hoof or Hodge depending on what records you read) 227795 Royal Engineers

Hope that helps

I went Dover-Dunkirk on a DFDS ferry,very reasonable,and close to where you want to be.Ferry every 2 hours either way.

I am not canvassing for business and there are other ferries and other routes,but I would do that again !

You are also close to the Belgian border and Adinkerke,where all the best tobacco deals are done !
