History Information

There was a Royal Air Force Station at Lossiemouth and when war broke out in 1939 there was already an Air Force plot in the burial ground. This was used for the majority of the service war burials, and only 23 are elsewhere in the cemetery. This plot lies to the right of the main entrance; the Cross of Sacrifice stands at the summit of a slope facing the graves. The Commission maintains 11 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-18 war, 110 of the 1939-45 war (of which 6 are unidentified seamen of the Merchant Navy, 8 are German Airmen and 1 is Polish) and 67 non-war graves (mostly Royal Navy burials post-1947 on behalf of the Ministry of Defence).
