Carn Choinnich Burial Ground
« on: Saturday 23 February 08 20:52 GMT (UK) »
I am going through a list of war graves in Argyll that have not been photographed for The War Grave Photographic Project.

This is one of the them but I am not sure where the burial ground is located.  There is "Tiree, Kilkenneth, Cill Choinnich" but I would have expected someone from Tayvallich to be buried nearer to there.

I wonder if anyone has any ideas (or better still a picture of the grave!)

This burial ground is at Carsaig near Tayvallich - you will find details on the attached link www.knapdalepeople.com/MICarsaig.html.  This burial ground is near where I live so when I get a chance I will go out there and take some pictures for you.  I hope this helps

Kind Regards

Marina

Thanks, I know the one now and I have been there before.  It can be a problem working out which is the right place and not helped by often them being put under the wrong county!

I used to try and do some as I travelled around with my work but only had time to do the most obvious ones.

I have to come down that way again because I could not find the war graves in three places on Saturday so will get a copy of the CWGC guides and do this one at the same time.  They will be family headstones and not CWGC ones so can be more difficult to find without some information.

Thanks again
