Location: Duke Street, Larkhall.

Map

The cemetery opened in 1889, with a new section on the opposite side of Station Road opening in the 1960s.

More details to be found here

34 CWGC graves.

Photo shows the older section. The newer section is on the other side of the road. All the CWGC burials are in the older section, and most of the World War commemorations are in here as well. The new section contains some post-WW2 burials, as well as some other military related graves.
