Glasgow Necropolis

Glasgow-2.jpg

The Necropolis stands on a hill to the east of Glasgow Cathedral, just a short walk across the Bridge of Sighs. The monument to John Knox, which was erected in 1825, dominates the hill. The cemetery itself, like several in Edinburgh, was modelled on Père-Lachaise in Paris. According to David Williams’ ‘The Glasgow Guide’, “a total of 50,000 burials have taken place here, with 3500 tombs being built”. for more click here
