Memorial to John Strang
Memorial to John Strang
This memorial commemorates "John Strang LL.D., Chamberlain of the City of Glasgow, born 1795, died 1863". The site mentioned in the end-note gives a good account of Strang's life: LinkExternal link

[Amongst other things, he was the author of "Necropolis Glasguensis" (1831), a work that provides some background to the creation of the cemetery, and which I had occasion to refer to when researching the photographs I had taken there.]
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.
