This memorial is located within an isolated cemetery by an unnamed road off the B9078 which leads to the cliffs and the lighthouse.

Major Harry Cheyne is also listed on the Grange Cricket Club and Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society war memorials in Edinburgh.

I'm sure I've seen his name on another Edinburgh war memorial too. Possibly a church one.

Kind regards

Adam
