Village War Memorial

The main village memorial sits in New Cumnock Old Cemetery, which is reached by taking the B741 Dalmellington road from the roundabout at the school and turning left onto an unclassified road leading to Burns Cairn. The cemetery sits about half a mile on the left. The new extension is met first where cars can be left. The Old Cemetery gates are just beyond the brow of the hill and the memorial sits at the top of the knowe.

It was unveiled and dedicated on Saturday the 3rd December 1921 and the proceedings were reported in the Cumnock Chronicle of December 9th 1921.

It has a pleasant outlook over the village and the surrounding countryside.

The Second World War panel was unveiled and dedicated on the 5th of October 1947 and reported in the Cumnock Chronicle of 10th of October 1947.

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old
Age shall not wither them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
