Ancestry Tours of Glasgow Cemeteries and Crematoria Scotland

Ancestry Tours of Glasgow Cemeteries and Crematoria Scotland. Cemetery Registers The History and Glasgow Room of the Mitchell Library holds the records of some twenty Glasgow cemeteries covering the period from the 18th century to the 1950s. There are a few also in Glasgow City Archives, as well as lair plans and registers of burials in intra-mural burial grounds, 1870-1950. The arrangement is chronological within each cemetery and there are no indexes. A comprehensive listing, including location of registers and monumental inscriptions of Glasgow can be found in, Willing, J. and Fairie, J.S., Burial Grounds in Glasgow: a brief guide for the genealogist (Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society, revised and re-printed 1997).

Additional cemetery registers for Glasgow, along with more recent records, are kept by the Cemeteries and Crematoria Section of the City of Glasgow Council Parks Department, 2 Port Dundas Place, Glasgow G2 3LB.

Glasgow Monumental Inscriptions. Parish registers of burials are particularly defective in Scotland and gravestones are often the only surviving death record before compulsory registration began in 1855. Little transcription of gravestones has been done in Glasgow. The Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society has published a complete index to St David's Ramshorn Burial Ground. The Mitchell Library holds lists for many other graveyards in Scotland, a full catalogue is available in the History and Glasgow Room.
