The CWGC site does not give a description of this cemetery apart from saying that there are 24 Commonwealth graves here.



Kirkhill Cemetery is also known as Penicuik Cemetery and is on the left as you go up Kirkhill Road. It is just about at the top of the hill.

The Cemetery is situated on the side of a hill and seems well looked after with gravel roads within.
