This cemetery is a mile and a half east of the town centre.

If you are coming into Blairgowrie from Perth on the A93 the cemetery is located on the right at approx grid ref 174 438 on OS sheet 53.

This was a rather emotional cemetery for me to do as this is where my family rest. I have my father, grandfather, two uncles, my brother and my niece in here.

The CWGC record 14 casualties.
