Burial Ground: Colinton Cemetery (Southern Extension)
Location: Dell Road, Edinburgh
OS Grid Ref: NT216691


Colinton Cemetery (Southern Extension) is across a small lane from the churchyard, but is a separate burial ground in its own right.

Firstly below I have listed the 11 from the CWGC index for this burial ground. Secondly is another CWGC headstone that I found, for a more recent conflict, so not on the CWGC website (details from the SNWM website). To follow that will be the others I found on their family headstones, not indexed on the CWGC list for this cemetery.

The cemetery location is outlined on the 1940s OS map shown below.
