The cemetery contains graves of both wars, including some non-war service graves in Section B.
A War Cross is erected near the entrance, with a screen wall bearing the names of those whose 1914-1918 graves are not marked by headstones.

There are now nearly 90, 1914-1918 and over 60, 1939-1945 War casualties commemorated in this site.

Location: Off Easter Road, Edinburgh
OS Ref: NT 271 750
