There are two cemeteries here and the older cemetery is marked on Google Maps as West Byres Cemetery.

The CWG site lists entries under Ormiston Cemetery and Ormiston Old Churchyard. There are no listings under West Byres Cemetery.

To reach both these cemeteries from Ormiston take the B6371 and turn right at the T section crossroads to follow the A6093.
The second opening on the left is the one you want, but be careful, the cemetery is about 100 - 200 yards from the turning, up a small hill which is just past/on a bend in the road. There is only a small "parking area" outside the newer cemetery. The older cemetery is across the road.

Both the old and the new cemeteries are well kept and tidy. The newer is very open and flat with a slight dip to one side. The older cemetery has some ruins of former buildings.
