OS Map Ref: NX 089 532

In the centre of Stoneykirk, the church has been out of use for a considerable number of years. The graveyard has most of the grass mown but is otherwise neglected with no obvious burials for over 80 years. I found no military inscriptions other than the CWGC listed graves.

Number of CWGC burials 4
