The inhabitants of the commune are known as Aignervillais or Aignervillaises.
Aignerville is located in the Regional Natural Park of Marshes of Cotentin and Bessin, two kilometres north-west of Trevieres and 16 km east by north-east of Bayeux in the valley of the Aure. The commune is bisected in the northern part from west to east by Route nationale N13 Motorway (E46) which runs between Carentan and Bayeux. Aignerville village is reached by road D198 from Asnieres-en-Bessin in the north which passes through the length of the commune and the village and continues south to join the D124 on the southern border. The commune consists almost entirely of farmland with the villages of Carrefour-Berigot, La Grande Route, and Chapelle-Saint-Louis along the north of the motorway and Normanville, Hameau-Lair, La Croix-Toutin, and Aignerville to the south.
The Ruisseau-de-Formigny river flows from south to north through the commune into the Aure Interieur which flows from the east forming the south-eastern border of the commune. In the south of the commune is a network of irrigation canals which is the beginning of a much larger network outside the commune.

In 2010, the commune had 200 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
