A single row of 21 graves records the passengers and crew of a Consolidated Liberator (LB-30A) AM261 of the Atlantic Return Ferry Organisation which flew into Mullach Buidhe north of Goat Fell on the Isle of Arran on the 10th August 1941.
All but one of the crew and passengers were buried here, the one who wasn't, Radio Officer Henry Green, was buried at Brookwood Military Cemetery in Surrey.
