It might be the old building within Keil cemetery at Southend.
If the weather is fine tomorrow, I might just pop along and check it out for you Iain.

That is definitely Keil. This section is at the far side of the ruined chapel and cannot be seen from the road.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner ! Roger, I found the image on Google and as confirmed by Crowth, I had the feeling is was somewhere south.

You are so lucky..., lol ! Having easy access to all that info ! :) Thanks for the offer..., but If the weather is anything like it is here, I'd advise you to stay indoors ! :lol:

Thanks all..., Iain.

I'll second that, I was there :)
These are from August 2011

Here's the entrance

Couple of shots from practically the same spot as the picture above

There is a section at one end that is padlocked shut, can anyone shed any light on that

Couldn't make out what this one was at all, must be a good story to tell here.

That old cemetery looks very interesting,has anyone transcribed the names from the gravestones,i`m sure there would be lots of people who would be interested to know who is buried there.

Thank`s for that information.Would this little cemetery just be listed under Keil or would it have a separate name?

OOPS looked at that link and found it.
It looks like it was known as St.Columba`s Kirk Cemetery.
Very interesting old stones.
