Warriston was the first designed garden cemetery (opened 1843) in Edinburgh. Many of the illustrious and anonymous of the day were interred there. Later it was neglected until the City implemented a Compulsory Purchase Order. The older parts became overgrown with invasive weeds and excess ivy until the Friends of Warriston Cemetery started clearance in 2013, to ensure that gravestones and fascinating monuments can be viewed, family graves visited, history and heritage enjoyed, whilst enhancing the Local Biodiversity aspects.
