Full Description

The burial-ground of Culinellan is at the farm of the same name. Just outside it are the remains of a house called "the chapel" which may have occupied the site of an ancient church. (See NH 06 SW 4 -Culinellan Church).
There are only a few shapeless stones in the burial-ground. (See also Burial Ground - NH 06 SW 1).
J H Dixon 1886 <1>

The burial ground now enclosed by a modern fence, is still in use.
The remains of a building, presumably "the chapel", are visible as a pile of rubble to which has been added field clearance. The building is reputed locally to have been a prayer house and may be the site of the church (NH 06 SW 4).
Surveyed at 1/2500. Visited by OS (R L) 25 October 1966

Rural graveyard in use surrounded my modern wire fence. There is no church in use or redundant church. Stonework adjacent to the burial ground may represent the remains of a chapel. The gravestones face east. They are in rows and are all 20th century. The ground is uneven. <2><3>
