Grave Reference:

Grave 767. R.C. Portion.


The burial ground lies on the northern slope of Portland Bill, three quarters of a mile due east of Portland railway station. To reach it follow the main road from Victoria Square (the bus terminal at the end of the causeway connecting Portland to the mainland) uphill past the first right hairpin bend and the police station, which is beyond this bend on the left; then take the first turning on the left (Verne Common Road) through and just past the council estate to a track running left downhill. From this point the cemetery can be clearly seen.
