East Renfrewshire

 Cathcart Cemetery is the final resting place of pioneering footballers, variety entertainers, artists and architects and sweetie kings

“A cemetery in the country, easy of access from the city, yet sufficiently removed to be clear of its deleterious vapours, surrounded by woods and echoing to the sound of murmuring streams, laid out and embellished with artistic taste, and yielding flowers and blossoms for nine months of the year, was hardly dreamed of. Yet these advantages have now been combined in Cathcart Cemetery" (“Notes on Cathcart Cemetery and Surrounding District”, 1888).

Join the Friends of Cathcart Cemetery on a tour of this late Victorian Garden Cemetery. Hear stories of some of the people buried in the cemetery, from early pioneer footballers, brave suffragettes, and the men who built Glasgow.
