Investigations within Ardrossan Cemetery

GUARD Archaeology is currently conducting a phase of preliminary investigations within Ardrossan Cemetery, North Ayrshire. The work is designed to investigate a section of the cemetery where local historian John Steele believes the remains of some of the sailors from HMS Dasher were buried within an unmarked grave in 1943. This project is designed to provide North Ayrshire Council with a view on the likelihood of a large burial pit being located within this area of the Cemetery.
