Location: Balmore Road, Glasgow G23 5LB
Map Reference: NS 580 700

Glasgow (Lambhill) Cemetery contains 109 scattered burials of the First World War, 123 from the Second World War and one Norwegian war grave.
No. of Identified Casualties: 233



Through the trees can be seen the original entry to Lambhill (and the Cross of Sacrifice) which is now limited to pedestrian access, vehicular access is through the Western Necropolis or St. Kentigerns. All three cemeteries are 'side by side' and between them cover a vast area. The first burial in Lambhill was in April 1882.



The Cross of Sacrifice - which stands just inside the original entrance on Balmore Road.

The above CWGC entry gives Rifleman Robert Beattie's parents as William and Elizabeth Ireland?
Perhaps Ireland was his mother's maiden name.
