Photo taken today from a double-decker bus.
This walled enclosure appeared to contain a great number of CWGC headstones.

This cemetery is known by two names; Newington Cemetery or Echo Bank Cemetery. I shall continue calling it Newington Cemetery as I have never heard of anyone from Edinburgh call it Echo Bank.

This burial ground suffers from the same lack of attention as Warriston Cemetery. Part of it is trimmed and just kept from the ravages of Mother Nature. The other part not seen from the road is wild and overgrown. An example of one area is shown below.
There may be some headstones in amongst this jungle as you can see one CWG headstone in the photo and I came across another two in a similar situation.



Entry to the cemetery is from Dalkeith Road, between the Commonwealth Pool and the Cameron Toll Roundabout on the right hand side.

An area just to the left as you enter the cemetery has been set aside for burials of those of the Jewish faith. It seems that this is no longer used, but I could be wrong.

One interesting find here is Private L. Rupesinghe of the Ceylon Medical Corps.

Edinburgh (Newington or Echo Bank) Cemetery contains 142 scattered burials of the First World War and 14 from the Second World War. Those of the 1914-1918 war whose graves are not marked by headstones are named on a Screen Wall memorial erected in the main War Plot (Section A1).

**PHOTO REQUIRED**


There seems to be a conflict here between the CWG site and the SNWM site regarding Service No details for the last regiment this person was a member and also his place of birth.
I shall be contacting both sites to try to resolve this issue.
