Located in Crossmichael churchyard at OS Map Ref NX 730 670.

Very sad - one Graham killed by the men of another Graham.

Most regrettably, as this marks his actual grave, this does not classify nationally as a war memorial. Locally, of coures, it does.

Personally I wish it did, but I didn't write the rules!!
