Location: Between Cumbernauld Road and Provanmill Road, Glasgow G33
Map Reference: NS637671

No.of Identified Casualties: 349

First Burial July 1901

There has been a new memorial erected in Riddrie Park commemorating the men buried in Section A which is not accesible. See pages 39 and 40 of this thread.



CWGC Website states: "Due to subsidence, a small area of section A is closed to the public. Glasgow City Council advise that you contact them prior to visiting as they can check to see if a particular grave if situated in the affected area."

It seems that the cemetery is on top of disused mine workings and although CWGC states that only a small part of Section A is closed, this 'small part' actually covers quite a sizeable area.

There are 16 CWGC graves listed as being in this section. (See list below)

The following photograph shows just a small section of the 'small part' and from that, the conditions are quite apparent!



The cemetery is in two 'halves', the oldest part (Sections A - E) are at the Provanmill Road side and include a small Jewish Section, whilst the remainder are at the Royston Road side.



The following are the CWGC listed graves in Section A which I have been unable to find.

Section A, Grave 715 - Signalman WALTER ALLISON, R.C.S.
Section A, Grave 9359 - Aircraftman JOHN McLENNAN ARMSTRONG, R.A.F.V.R.
Section A, Grave 1734 - Private JOHN LAIRD BOWIE, H.L.I.
Section A, Grave 7884 - Gunner WILLIAM RAMSEY MARTIN, R.A.
Section A, Grave 2860 - Private ROBERT SHEDDEN McLEOD, A. & S. H.
Section A, Grave 2374 - Rifleman THOMAS STEVENSON, S.R.
