Lady Old Churchyard on the island of Sanday one of the
Orkneys is situated in the tiny hamlet of Lady off the B9069
road from Saltess on the east coast to Little Isegarth in the
west. The old church is now roofless and gravestones here
date back centuries. Only two Commonwealth graves are listed
as being in this cemetery, however neither could be found on
my visit.
