Description

An overgrown heap of rubble marks the place where the Maryhill Chapel of Ease was erected in 1826, on land granted by Miss Lillias Graham of the Gairbraid Estate for the local congregation of the Barony Parish of Glasgow. More than 130 transcriptions at Maryhill Old Parish Churchyard, Glasgow were noted in 1985 by members of Glasgow & West of Scotland Family History Society. Records of the Burying Ground were destroyed in a vestry fire in the 1960s, except for one receipt book. The names and lair numbers in this book were extracted by the Church Officer and his wife this allowed them to draw the lair plan, a copy of which is included.

Contents include Introduction; Churchyard; Surname Index; Memorial Inscriptions.

From a collaboration between J. S. Fairie, M. Toman, A. Reddoch, J.A. Willing, M Stewart, Mr. & Mrs. P. T. Logan and Stewart A. Reid
