Cemetery: MONTROSE (SLEEPYHILLOCK) CEMETERY
Country: United Kingdom
Locality: Angus
Historical Information: The cemetery contains service plots of both wars here (the majority of which are 1939-1945). Most of these graves are of airmen and there is a special RAF plot in the south-eastern part of the cemetery, near the lodge. South of the north gate is an all services plot. There are now nearly 40, 1914-1918 and nearly 100, 1939-1945 War casualties commemorated in this site.
No. of Identified Casualties: 132


On my visit I found many of the graves were covered pretty thickly with muck, many graves are overhung by trees and are in no position to get washed by the rain. I'll try and get better pics when I return for the missing graves.

Anne has pointed out the Death Penny is missing from this headstone. I imagine it's just fell out as the stone has deteriorated badly and been picked up by someone?
