BEN M'SIK EUROPEAN CEMETERY
This is a very large civilian cemetery. It is approximately 6 kilometres from Casablanca town centre and lies between the main road to Marrakech and the road known as Oulad Zianc. It is best reached by taxi. The Commission plot is located amongst the other nationalities military plots. It is found on the right handside at the far end of the main road coming from the Cemetery entrance. Isolated Grave of Chief Steward H K V NIELSEN: To reach this grave one walks up the main alley to the circular intersection, turn left there and walk 12 paces. The grave is then found 17 metres from the road and at right angles to the left. The local caretakers open the gates of the cemetery at 9.00 a.m. and close them at 5.00 p.m., every day. We would, however, suggest that any visit to the cemetery is made either mid-morning or mid-afternoon, avoiding the middle of the day.
