Glasgow: Necropolis bridge monument
This memorial details the building of the NS6065 : Glasgow: bridge over Wishart Street which it faces directly. The inscription reads:

THE ADJOINING BRIDGE
was erected by
THE MERCHANTS HOUSE OF GLASGOW
to afford a proper entrance to their new cemetery combining convenient access to the grounds with suitable decoration to the venerable cathedral and surrounding scenery to unite the tombs of many generations who have gone before with the resting places destined for generations yet unborn, where the ashes of all shall repose until the resurrection of the just, when that which is born a natural body shall be raised a spiritual body, when this corruptible must put on incorruption, when this mortal must put on immortality, when death is swallowed up in victory.
A.D. MDCCCXXXVI
James Martin, Dean of Guild
“Blessed is the man who trusteth in God and whose hope the Lord is”
