OS Map Ref: NX 809 905

In the village of Kirkland on A702. 2m E of Moniaive, 0.3m W of junction with B729.

Number of CWGC burials 2 (churchyard) and 3 (extension)

There are now actually 3 extensions in use and a further 2 laid out. They all run together with the main churchyard (walls and gates between) so I have combined these two burial places as one.

CWGC notes the following:

The churchyard is divided into the Old Ground, surrounding the ruins of the old Church, and the New Ground, separated from the Old by the new Parish Church.
