There are three cemeteries in a row as you head into Kilbirnie from Beith. WW1 & WW2 burials are in the middle cemetery.
The huge gates at the entrance are usually locked
but a side gate is nearly always open.
War graves are scattered all around the cemetery
and grave markers are of no use.

There are 18 CWGC graves, however Private A I Fleming is not in C6 as indicated in the CWGC report for the cemetery.
There are many more graves within the grounds
that relate to fallen soldiers but are private headstones.
