Another major Orkney cemetery, as far as wargraves are concerned, is at St Olaf's. This graveyard lies 1 mile south of the town of Kirkwall, about half a mile off the A964 road leading towards Orphir.

CWGC report 125 war-related burials there.
I visited the cemetery on October 4th, 2008.

A note on the pictures:
They are in alphabetical order of surname, irrespective of nationality.
Some of the pics are a wee bit fuzzy, due to low light conditions during the visit.
