About the memorial: Addition to family gravestone, which is a pedimented tapered sandstone pillar. Old Globe Cemetery is no longer in use. Access to it was extinguished when Colville Park Country Club was established. There are 13 war graves in the cemetery. As they are no longer maintainable they have a special stone of commemoration in Airbles Cemetery. Finding the cemetery can be difficult. Direction to Old Globe Dalziel Cemetery: From the center of Motherwell, head northwest on Muir Street. Take a right onto Milton Street. Bare to the left when Woodburn goes off to the right. Continue on to Wood Crescent, turn right. Then turn left onto Glen Street which will come to a dead end. Follow the path (old dirt road) for about 1/4 to 1/2 mile. You will cross a creek and the cemetery will be to your right. Follow the path and cross the South Calder Water (creek). Access can also be obtained from Kirklee Road west of the country club. Much of the cemetery has been vandalized. However, the location is beautiful and worth a visit. A word of warning to anyone considering visiting - this cemetery is in a fairly rough area, the cemetery is very badly vandalised in places, and is a haven for "neds", alkies, junkies and the like. I would exercise caution if planning to visit and DO NOT VISIT ALONE.
