There is a group of 32 Stones situated at the top of the Cemetery arranged alphabetically in a semi-circular formation facing the War Memorial. They represent only a selection of the men connected to Tillicoultry but what the criteria was to have one of these stones is unknown

I don't think any of the men commemmorated on these stones are buried at this spot. Some are definately not, as they are listed on CWGC as buried elsewhere. At the moment, I'm not sure what the number of this particular section is, so the ones who are listed as buried in Tillicoultry might be here or have stones elsewhere in the cemetery.



The following are all the names which appear on the stones but the men will be listed alphabetically in the normal order. (i.e. A - Z CWGC burials first, then A - Z non-CWGC Burials)

ARCHIBALD, William Bruce, R.A.F.
BELL, James Rutherford Hutton, R.A.F.
CONDIE, James, R.N.
COULTER, William, R.A. (On the stone his Regiment is given as R.E.)
CREE, John, A. & S. H.
CUMMING, James H., Black Watch
DAWSON, Tom, R.A.F.
DUNN, Andrew Graham, R.A.F.
FERGUSSON, William Currie, R.A.F.
FRASER, Harry Gowans, R.C.S.
FYFE, Jack Leslie, R.A.F.
GARDINER, Alexander, S.R.
GARLICK, John Munro, R.A.F.
GIBSON, Ernest B., A. & S. H.
HUNTER, Robert, London Scottish
HUNTER, Robert S., A. & S. H.
MAXWELL, David, R.A.F.
MULLAN, George P., F.A.F.
MYLCHREEST, Alexander, A. & S. H.
McEWEN (McEWAN), James, R.A.F.
NESS, David, A. & S. H.
NESS, James S., London Scottish
PATERSON, James, R.A.C.
PATERSON, John Leckie, R.A.
RENNIE, George, R.A.F.
ROBSON, Thomas F., R.A.F.
RUSSELL, John, A. & S. H.
SHARP, James Williamson, R.E.
STIRLING, Robert, Scot. Parat'p.
SUTHERLAND, William, A. & S. H.
