Just came across this site which lists all the cemeteries in Scotland that are listed by CWGC (broken down by region).

http://www.purecollector.com/history/cwgc/Scotland.html

Of course there will be other cemeteries that we are interested in, ie those with military burials or inscriptions but without CWGC listed burials. Still, it is a good place to start for those interested in collecting all of the graves in a given area.

That's an incredibly useful link. It's given me a few to go and check which I might otherwise have missed.

Great link.

It has already helped me locate all the CWGC stones in Inveresk Cemetery, (and some non CWGS ones too). All I have to do now is sort out all the information and the photos and then I can get posting!

Don't forget the non listed ones though. Kells churchyard in New Galloway for example is not listed because there are no CWGC listed graves but apart from the usual collection of military inscriptions there is:

a covenanter grave

an original WW1 battlefield cross placed as a memorial

the grave of a VAD nurse who is listed on the local memorial
