Cemetery notes and/or description:
As a medieval site, the Kirkton Church and churchyard. has buildings which probably date from the early 13th century.

On 30 May 1936, the cemetery, which had long been closed for interment, was reopened specially to allow Helen Donaldson to be laid to rest beside her late husband. A local newspaper of the day reported the occasion: "The funeral of Mrs Donaldson, who was 90 years of age, took place Tuesday afternoon and was attended by a representative turnout of old friends and residents. Mrs Donaldson's burial is the last that will take place in the ancient Kirkyard of the Kirk, built over 700 years ago and originally known as the Kirk of Litel Kingorn."

(Source - 'Monumental Inscriptions (pre-1855) in West Fife' by John Fowler Mitchell and Sheila Mitchell, Scottish Genealogy Society, 1972. Although the Mitchells usually confined their recording to pre-1855 deaths, they appear to have recorded all of the headstones in the Kirkton Churchyard. Their booklet contains the full inscriptions.
