The building was later cleaned, as shown in NS4076 : The Denny Family Mausoleum.

In the present photo, the entrance can be seen on the shaded northern side; the name "DENNY" is inscribed above the doorway.
The Denny family mausoleum

The Denny family were particularly prominent in the local shipbuilding industry. Their mausoleum is located in NS4076 : Dumbarton Cemetery, and was designed by the architect John M. Crawford (1854-1950).

Dumbarton Cemetery

The cemetery was formally opened on the 4th of October, 1854, replacing the overcrowded parish churchyard. See the Geograph article "Dumbarton Cemetery" Link for a detailed discussion. For biographies of many of those buried here, and for descriptions of their memorials, see Donald MacLeod's "The God's Acres of Dumbarton" (1888), and the same author's "Dumbarton: Its Recent Men and Events" (1898). By 2010, there was concern that Dumbarton Cemetery would run out of space within a decade; New Dumbarton Cemetery Link was subsequently created uphill from the existing cemetery, and opened at the end of December 2015.
