Location Information

From Perth take the A90 towards Dundee. At roundabout at entrance to Dundee take the right hand exit, probably signed as Nine Wells Hospital and Airport. The road is Riverside Drive. After half a mile pass road to Nine Wells on left, continue for about another 1 mile to mini-roundabout, take first exit, cross bridge and go up the hill. At crossroads, go straight over into Glamis Road. After about half a mile you will find Balgay Cemetery on the right hand side of the road.

Historical Information

The cemetery contains service plots of both wars. Most of the 1914-1918 burials are in a war plot in Section B. A Screen Wall memorial is erected by the Plot to name those whose graves are not marked by headstones. There is a Cross of Sacrifice in the Plot. The 1939-1945 burials are in various parts of the necropolis.

There are now nearly 150, 1914-1918 and nearly 130, 1939-1945 War casualties commemorated in this site. The Polish Group plot contains a special memorial, commemorating a Polish soldier buried elsewhere in the cemetery.
