The Cemetery has two entrances, one on East Muirlands road and the main one at Forfar Road.

View from cemetery to Forfar road entrance.


CWGC website says:

Historical Information: The cemetery contains graves of both World Wars. The 1914-1918 graves are scattered in the cemetery. Most of the 1939-1945 graves are in a service plot, but a few are in other parts of the cemetery. There are now a small number of 1914-1918 war casualties and nearly 60, 1939-1945 War casualties commemorated in this site.

No. of Identified Casualties: 62 (This figure includes Foreign and Non-World War graves in CWGC care)
