28.J.36.c.7.5 is the correct location for the German cemetery at Kruiseke ( AKA Kruiseik, Kruiseecke,..)

After the war, 71 British soldiers were moved from here to Tynecot, 93 to Zandvoorde, 2 to Sanctuary wood and 30 have a special memorial at Zandvoorde for a lost grave at Kruiseke GMC. The documents for these concentrations have different map locations, some are way off.

Map below shows the correct location.

There was an issue with the cemetery shortly after the war. As with most German cemeteries, care was basically non-existant (the Germans weren't allowed to do anything according to the Versailles Treaty and the relevant allied commissions (Belgian and IWGC) didn't do much. This led to the tenant/owner of the area to build a house on top of the cemetery, most probably on top some of the graves.
