East Preston Street Cemetery. Opposite the Commonwealth Pool.

This cemetery is known as the West Kirk Burial Ground, Newington by CWGC. There is one 1 WW1 CWGC grave.

Looking at all the doctors, professors and ministers in the graveyard it must have had some sort of connection to the University.

There are a handful of graves with a military connection. It also contains the Nelson Publishers Great War Memorial which was moved to the cemetery when the printing works were demolished.
