In memory of the 52 people who died when the "Loch Ard" sank on 1 June 1878.
Only four bodies were recovered - those of Mrs. Evory Carmichael, Miss Raby Carmichael, Arthur Mitchell and Reginald Jones. These were placed in coffins made from timber washed up in Loch Ard Gorge and buried in this cemetery. A cross of spars from the wreckage was erected over the graves and this was later replaced with headstones.
