Glasgow (Eastwood) Old and New Cemetery contains 47 scattered burials of the First World War and 100 from the Second World War. In addition there is a small garden of remembrance where servicemen from both wars buried in Glasgow's Sighthill and Southern Necropolis Cemeteries are commemorated. The memorial consists of headstones removed from the actual graves, which could no longer be properly maintained when the cemeteries closed in March 1954.

Photographs very kindly supplied by Lora McGinlay.
