There are three Burial Grounds in Bathgate, the oldest is just opposite the Public Park on the main Edinburgh Road, nearly in Boghall, the next is in the centre of the town just off Glasgow Road at Meadow Park, this has an Old and new section, and last is Boghead Cemetery just off Hardhill Road on the way to Armadale, a newer Cemetery.

Records of Lairs are not available online, but West Lothian Council will answer a phone call and provide information, they are very helpful.

Depends on when they were buried. Glasgow Road is the oldest and is divided into three. The oldest part is Paulville just North of the Health Centre then Johnson to the North. From c1936 burials took place at Boghead before returning to an extension at Glasgow Road. I could have a quick look at the West Lothian Family History Society's CDs for you. BillionGraves has photographs of all (or at least most) of the headstones in both Cemeteries.
