Glasgow (Cardonald) Cemetery


Historical Information: 

Glasgow was one of the ports of embarkation for the British Expeditionary Force in 1914 and several military hospitals opened in the city during the First World War, including the 3rd and 4th Scottish General (1,200 beds each), and the Merryflats War Hospital (500 beds). Battalions of a number of Scottish regiments had their headquarters at Glasgow during both wars, most notably the Highland Light Infantry. The Clydeside shipyards were targeted by German bombers during the Blitz, and Glasgow suffered a particularly ferocious attack on the night of 13/14 March 1941 when many civilians and servicemen were killed.

Glasgow (Cardonald) Cemetery contains 161 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, including 2 unidentified seamen, a number of them forming a war graves plot in Section E. This plot also contains one non-war service burial and 38 war graves of other nationalities, many of them made from the prisoner-of-war camp at Johnstone Castle, just outside Glasgow.
