The villages of Whitekirk and Tyninghame can be found on the A198 from North Berwick. The church is situated on Binning Wood Road in Whitekirk, not too far from the golf club.

Although the CWGC have no graves listed for this Cemetery, there are 8 WWI and 2 WWII to be found within the churchyard.





You can see the War Memorial just to the right (in the distance) of the big tree.



The War memorial is also found in the graveyard and the WWI Roll of Honour is in the church (Both documented on The Scottish War Memorial Project site). There is also 2 brass plaques within the church, which I will document here at the end, then post on our "sister" site.

To the memory of James Rayner, Captain, John Terry, Mate, Robert Bell, James Boyle, Charles Zollier, John Berry. Crew of the Brig Elizabeth Hartlepool wrecked off Tyninghame March 19 1865, when all on board perished their bodies are interred at this spot. May God have mercy on their souls through Christ our Lord.

Not sure if this should be here or not, as can find no record of the Brig Elizabeth.
