Piershill Cemetery can be found on the right hand side of Portobello Road (A1140), on the way to Portobello.

Tidy and well kept, this cemetery is the last resting place for two holders of the Victoria Cross (VC) and a Jewish Cemetery containing a Jewish Soldiers war memorial.



More information on the cemetery can be found on this site http://www.edinburghcemeteries.co.uk/piershill.htm
