In this neck of the woods you have to be careful with your "old" and "new" or you can end up six miles from where you thought you were.
This cemetery is opposite the Fire Station at the top of Glaisnock Street in Old Cumnock, (although most folk tend to drop the "Old" bit) as it heads south from the Town Centre. It is at map reference NS 572192 and has 12 war graves. Five from the First and seven from the Second World War.
