History Information

There was a Royal Air Force Training Station at Kinloss aerodrome during the 1939-1945 War. During the early part of the 1939-1945 War a special plot was set aside for service war burials, and all but three of the war graves are in this plot. Elsewhere in the burial ground there is one 1914-1918 War grave. A Cross of Sacrifice is erected at the far end of the plot overlooking the graves.
