A future for Glasgow’s Necropolis

Welcome to the online home of The Friends of Glasgow Necropolis – the official guides of the Necropolis. This website is a focus for developing interest in this fascinating Victorian garden cemetery adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral.

roll-of-honour

We organise guided walking tours of this 37 acre cemetery full of wonderful architecture, sculpture and fascinating stories relating to the 50,000 people remembered here. As a charity, donations we receive from our tours are used for restoration work. We are always looking for new information – please contact us chair@glasgownecropolis.org if you can contribute to our website. We are particularly keen to hear from descendants of the ‘incumbents’ that can provide profiles of those buried here.
