Remembered Today:

Eastwood Cemetery, Glasgow

I was in the area today and thought I would visit the grave of my grandparents. While in the cemetery I noticed this area which is set slightly aside from the main cemetery.

The CWGC site records that "In addition [to the graves already in the cemetery] there is a small garden of remembrance where servicemen from both wars buried in Glasgow's Sighthill and Southern Necropolis Cemeteries are commemorated. The memorial consists of headstones removed from the actual graves, which could no longer be properly maintained when the cemeteries closed in March 1954."

Having never visited the cemeteries in France, I thought that I got a little hint of the feelings you would get seeing so many of these graves.

This small area felt very peaceful indeed.
