The official address is:
160 Brenfield Road, Cathcart, G44 3JW (the cemetery is located on the southern edge of the City of Glasgow).
There are various entrances, mainly pedestrian, into the cemetery but a good place to start is on Netherlee Road were there are two large gateways which face each other on either side of the road, leading into the older cemetery and the newer Linn Section. This is beside the Weldspec yard at 140 Netherlee Road, G44 3QA. There is also a guide map on the railing beside each gate.

According to the CWGC site there are a total of 235 Commonwealth War Graves located within the cemetery.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission site (CWGC) referred to in most of the entries can be viewed here:

ALLISON PETER M.

CWGC ENTRY: Not found
This looks to be the only possibility, but it's the furthest out I've ever seen, and he would be 37 according to d.o.b on attestation, so maybe coincidence
