I managed to get a few photos but will have to leave it to someone else to fill in the gaps. I noticed that this cemetery has one of the new Commonwealth War Graves plaques, also on google maps, it now shows commonwealth war graves for this cemetery.

I was intrigued by the unusual name ACQUROFF - but not so unusual.
There are 27 people of that name in Edinburgh on the 1911 census and 2 others on the CWGC Register (both of Edinburgh)

ACQUROFF, ALEXANDER. Sgt.20671. M.M. 55th MGC. Age 21. Died 22/3/1918
Son of Robert and Janet Acquroff, of 134, Georgie Rd., Edinburgh.

ACQUROFF, WILLIAM HENRY. Pte.3226. 6th AIF Age 25 Died 4/10/1917
Son of John and Agnes Henry Acquroff, of 111, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh, Scotland.
