Yes they are just either side of the gate though were probably more for storing shovels etc. Though back in the bad old days of grave robbing who knows

In the U.K the War Graves and their whereabouts and layouts are piss poor compared to those in other countries.

Some of these plaques proclaim war graves but enter the cemetery and trying to locate them is another matter. Whilst time may have clouded the locations there should be more done to identify these interred sites. Go to France, Germany, Belgium etc the war graves are in manicured lawns, here the headstones usually have been kicked over and are lying in Glasgows answer to a rainforest.

Agree with you there. Craigton looks a lot better than it used to do.
