Description

Walking down Station Brae towards the river, one sees on the left-hand side, between the roadway and the public cemetery, an area enclosed behind a timber and high steel wire fence. It proves to be the " Dreghorn Civic Amenity Site " i.e. a council yard containing a number of skips in which the public may deposit bulky domestic waste. The entrance to the yard is at the far end, and somewhat ironically adjacent to the entrance to the cemetery. This cemetery is extensive, well kept and contains 1200 graves. It is divided into areas by a wall with two openings. The nearer part of the cemetery is conventional with monumental stones carrying dates as far back as the 1870s, although the earliest recorded burial is for a child who died in 1846. The oldest stones appear to be in the north-west corner. The section of the cemetery beyond the dividing wall is more modern, and the monumental stones are laid flat, forming what is evidently known as a " lawn " cemetery. This gives a very open aspect to the area and brings into prominence the flowers arranged around the graves. On the opposite side of Station Brae, about 100 metres from the Cross, there is a gateway leading to a new small cemetery with about 40 monumental stones. The earliest inscriptions carry dates in 1994. Plots are laid out to allow more graves. (From http://www.ayrshireroots.co.uk)
