Location: 951 Balmore Road, Glasgow G23 5HA
Map Reference: NS 583 695

No. of Identified Casualties: 332



Glasgow (St Kentigern's) Roman Catholic Cemetery contains 134 scattered burials of the First World War; a small screen wall commemorates those servicemen buried in graves that are not marked by headstones. Most of the 186 Second World War burials are also scattered, but there is a small service group in the centre of the cemetery. The cemetery also contains 11 war graves of other nationalities and one non-war service burial, that of a New Zealand veteran.

Stones found for other nationalites will be posted after the non-CWGC burials.



The first burial to take place in the cemetery was on the 1st December 1882
