Description

The first edition of this guide, published in 1986, was written with the intention of updating the survey of pre-1855 Glasgow burial grounds published in 1958 by the late John F. Mitchell.  It was also felt it would be useful to extend the survey to cover post-1855 burial grounds.  In 1975, the reorganisation of local government in Scotland had meant that the Glasgow boundary had changed to take in several more burial grounds not in Glasgow in 1958.  Since then, the boundary of Glasgow has changed again, with another reorganisation of local government in 1996. This time, some burial grounds have been removed from within Glasgow, but we have not removed the details from the guide.  For this revised edition, the locations of all the registers and MI lists have been checked, and holdings updated.  Crematoria have been included for the first time.

The location of all the registers and MI lists were correct as at the publication date in 1997.
