Burial Information


Moray, United Kingdom

Grave Reference:

RAF War Graves Plot. Grave 1237.


Lossiemouth is a seaport town and coastguard station on the Moray Firth, some five miles due north of Elgin. The burial ground lies between the railway station and Spynie Canal, about a mile and a quarter from the railway station, and it contains war graves of both world wars. There was a Royal Air Force Station at Lossiemouth and when war broke out in 1939 there was already an Air Force plot in the burial ground. This was used for the majority of the service war burials, and only 23 are elsewhere in the cemetery. This plot lies to the right of the main entrance; the Cross of Sacrifice stands at the summit of a slope facing the graves. Inevitably there are a small number of pre-war Air Force graves among the war graves, and three men of the Royal Navy and one belonging to the Royal Canadian Navy who died after the war have also been buried here.
