Tilly-sur-Seulles War Cemetery is about 12km south of Bayeux and sits roughly three quarters of the way from Jerusalem War Cemetery to Hottot-les-Bagues War Cemetery. Stay on the D6 until you enter Tilly-sur-Seulles, then turn right onto the D13 opposite the Marie. The Cemetery is about 1km on the left hand side of the road. There is a small lay-by on the other side of the road for parking.

Immediately following the landings there was heavy fighting in the vicinity of Tilly-sur-Seulles involving 7th Armoured, 49th and 50th Divisions during Operation Bluecoat. Tilly itself changed hands several times and was eventually captured on 18th June. Fighting continued nearby until mid July.

The first burial made at Tilly-sur-Seulles was on the 8th July. There are 45 unidentified graves amongst the 990 Commonwealth burials. There are also 232 German graves.
