This is a very smart, tidy and well kept cemetery laid out on a small incline.
The only thing I would say against it is that even in the summer there always seems to be a cold wind/breeze present.

To find this cemetery head for the Police Station.
With the Police Station on your left hand side, there is a former church facing you. Take the road that runs up the right hand side of the church and you will see on your left hand side the drive that leads to the cemetery. There is a small parking area towards the top of this drive.
