Location: High Street Eyemouth, opposite the Co-op car park.
Post Code: TD14 5EU (Co-op)
Map reference: NT 944 643 (Approx)

There are no CWGC Burials in this location.



The monument seen in these photographs commemorates the men killed in the East Coast Fishing Disaster of 14th October 1881.
The existing stones have been re-arranged around the perimeter walls but the two which follow, presumably are still in their original location.
