Glasgow – Necropolis and Cathedral

The Glasgow Necropolis was created on a hill above Glasgow Cathedral (High Kirk of Glasgow or St Kentigern’s or St Mungo’s Cathedral) in 1831 and is built as a Victorian Cemetery and around 50.000 individuals have been buried in approximately 3500 tombs.

The main entrance is approached by a bridge and the cemetery is laid out as an informal park, lacking the formal grid layouts of later cemeteries. The most larger monuments stand uphill towards the summit and are clustered around the John Knox Monument.
