Edmonstone Burial Ground
Edmonstone Burial Ground
This is the burial ground of the Edmonstones of Cardross Park (see NS3477 : Braid Drive). It is located at the north-western side of the kirkyard of NS3477 : Cardross Old Parish Church. The roundel to the right of the entrance is very worn, but reads as follows:

"Charles Edmonstone of Cardross Park, died on the 29th November, 1827, in the 71st year of his age."

The family coat of arms is above the entrance, and is shown separately: NS3477 : Edmonstone Burial Ground (detail).

A very similar structure is located nearby: NS3477 : Auchenfroe Family Burial Ground.
Cardross Old Parish Church
The first church on this site was erected in 1643-44; it replaced St Serf's Church LinkExternal link as parish church of Cardross. It, in turn, was replaced by Cardross Old Parish Church (1826-27; architect James Dempster); see LinkExternal link (at Canmore) for details. It was damaged by WWII bombing (1941), and is no longer in ecclesiastical use. The present-day parish church is the nearby former Free Church (NS34467754) on Station Road.
