Memorial to Colin Dunlop of Tollcross
Memorial to Colin Dunlop of Tollcross
The inscription on the near side of the monument is as follows: "Colin Dunlop of Tolcross born 1775 died 1837".

Colin Dunlop, of the Clyde Ironworks at Tollcross (the modern-day spelling), was elected as one of the two Members of Parliament for Glasgow in 1835. He died unmarried, and his estate passed to his nephew, James Dunlop, for whom NS6363 : Tollcross House was built.

(The steeple with scaffolding, in the background, is that of Glasgow Cathedral.)
Glasgow Necropolis
The Necropolis is 37 acres in extent, and was formally opened in 1833. Like the Père Lachaise in Paris, it was laid out as a garden cemetery. In 1966, its ownership was transferred from the Merchants House of Glasgow to what is now Glasgow City Council. See LinkExternal link for further information.
