Location Information

This large cemetery is 2 miles from Dundee station, on the Dundee-Arbroath road, and belongs to the Dundee Corporation. Apart from a small group of 14 graves in a reserved plot in an extension to the cemetery, about 500 yards from the 1914-1918 Cross of Sacrifice, the 1939-1945 War graves are in various parts of the burial ground. Some have permanent privately erected memorials instead of the usual Commission headstone. The total number of 1939-1945 War burials is 145, a special memorial commemorates in the reserved plot a Dutch merchant seaman buried elsewhere in the cemetery. There are also 132 burials of the 1914-1918 War, and these too are scattered in various parts of the cemetery.
