Access can be made from Ochil Road, which runs along the back/top of Alva Cemetery or from the Glebe, which is the main entrance to the cemetery.

Both parts, Old Ground and South Churchyard are locked so no access can be made unless by arrangement either with Clackmannan Cemeteries Office or Clackmannanshire Council.

The South Churchyard can be seen behind the wall at the top of the cemetery.
