The cemetery is located on Ayr Road and was developed in 1900 with a new extension which opened in 1946.

5 CWGC graves in total.



Here's a panoramic shot of the cemetery. Bear in mind this is the first time I've tried this so there's a rather obvious join right in the middle. All the CWGC stones are in the left hand side of the cemetery, before the fence.



MOD EDIT: Adam made the original post, detail and photos added by David.

This is what I like about this project. The CWGC entry is very sparse, but here you have a lot of family detail which would otherwise be unknown.
