Location: Salmon Inn Brae, between Polmont and Grangemouth
Map Reference: NS 922 793

No. of CWGC Burials: 92



Most of the photographs, especially the non-CWGC burials were taken in winter.

The plan was, that as there are so many trees in Grandsable Cemetery, there might be a bit more light when the trees shed their leaves
but as it turned out, this wasn't too good an idea!

I hope to return and update as many photos as I can (weather permitting) during the summer months.

The 1914-1918 War burials are in various positions in the cemetery. During the 1939-1945 War a large section, comprising of three plots, was set aside for service war graves, but only one plot was used. This is close to the main entrance and was intended for airmen, who form the majority of the service casualties buried here.



Facing the service plot is a Cross of Sacrifice which stands on a podium on slightly rising ground. Sitting in front of the Cross of Sacrifice is a wooden bench in memory of:
