The plan that goes with the CDs from which the FindMyPast records are taken from gives rough locations of the sections. the burial you are looking for is in the oldest part called Paulville. Coming from the entrance from Whitburn Road section K is to the right and in front of you, from Glasgow Road and the car park go straight through the part called Johnston and walk straight up to nearly the top, section K is on your right. this part of the cemetery is a bit of a jumble of graves luckily the headstones have been numbered on the base. Most (if not all) the headstones have been photographed and are on FindAGrave or BillionGraves, there is nothing for Andrew on either site.
