The cemetery at Rothsay is marked by a small sign. The only headstone (Chopin's) is quite large. A couple of graves appear to have stones around them and their seems to be disturbed earth in the spaces which might be unmarked graves. There is also another grave but I suspect this is someone's much loved dog as it was only 14 years and is a modern burial.
