Location: Stonehouse Road, Strathaven.

No. of CWGC burials: 11. CWGC had originally separated the Old Churchyard and the New Cemetery, but South Lanarkshire Council (I think) have the old churchyard as a section of the cemetery, so CWGC have clearly done likewise.

Photographs kindly supplied by John Kennedy unless otherwise specified.
