Aberdeen (Trinity) Cemetery
Just north of Aberdeen's city centre lies Aberdeen (Trinity) Cemetery and Broadhill Extension, which contain the graves and memorials of over 270 Commonwealth servicemen and women of the two World Wars and is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
The port city of Aberdeen played an important role in both world wars. The city was the home of the Gordon Highlanders infantry regiment, while servicemen of the Royal Navy Reserve based out of Aberdeen's port swept the waters of the North Sea for enemy mines. Trinity Cemetery, which dates from the turn of the 19th-20th century, contains the graves and memorials to over 170 First World War and over 100 Second World War service personnel, including two servicewomen.
Known locally as Trinity Cemetery, Aberdeen (Trinity) Cemetery and Broadhill Extension are on either side of Park Road, north of the city centre. Park Road is close to the esplanade and runs past Aberdeen city football ground. The entrances to the cemeteries are on opposite sides of Park Road, south of the football ground.
Before visiting, we recommend you consult the website of the cemetery authority.
