Discover the cemeteries and crematoria of Glasgow

Glasgow’s impressive range of last resting places reflects the wealth and confidence of the city, and the changing beliefs and attitudes of its inhabitants through time. This classroom-based series of meetings will examine the development of cemeteries (from the Glasgow Necropolis in 1832) and crematoria (from the Glasgow Crematorium in 1895), and discuss the meanings of the landscapes, memorials and other structures found there. This course will be of interest to family historians, and those interested in architecture, sculpture, and the social and cultural history of Glasgow. There is a related series of walks in Block Three. Please note that this is a classroom-based course.
