Entrance to this small and well maintained cemetery is on the corner of Marionville Drive and Restalrig Road South.

Only one Commonwealth War Grave here, but there are a few headstones for members of the 6th Dragoon Guards and 17th Lancers who were stationed in nearby Piershill Barracks in the 19th century.
There is also mention on one headstone of being killed by pirates.
