These photos by "spoons" are interesting.
As far as I can tell none of those named were serving and are not listed on the Armed Forces Memorial.
Whatever the reason ( and I'm still trying to find out) the setting is beautiful.

Research by members of the Royal British Legion Scotland has uncovered lair records for burial plots in St Michael's Cemetery in Dumfries (just across the river from Troqueer)
They show that the Dumfries and Maxwelltown Branch of the British Legion purchased burial plots in March 1926.
It looks as though these were for ex-servicemen who had fallen on hard times.
2 of the burials (in 1933) were from the Crichton Royal Institution (the psychiatric hospital). 3 burials (1934, 1939 & 1941) were from the Dumfries Royal Infirmary. 2 burials (1937 & 1939) were from Rosevale House (the Poor House) and 1 (1945) was from the Municipal Hostel.
The Burghs of Dumfries and Maxwelltown did not merge until 1929 so I suspect that burial plots were purchased in both parishes.
