Identified Casualties:24

Location Information:

This burial ground lies at the southern end of the village of Bowmore, on the shore of Loch Indal.

Historical Information:

The Parish Church in the grounds is unusual, being completely circular in design.

There are 4 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-18 war here. There is a group of 1939-45 graves near the north-eastern entrance. The 1939-45 Commonwealth burials number in all 61. They include 36 unknown seamen of the Merchant Navy who were originally buried in the Claddach Burial Ground, Portnahaven, and 2 who were buried at Kilchiaran Burial Ground, Kilchoman, where the graves could not be permanently maintained. The great majority of the 1939-1945 graves are in the war graves group, but there are a few in other parts of the churchyard. There are 3 Foreign National war burials and 2 non-war Service burials here.

My thanks to Morag Welsh for these photographs.
