Leiper Family Monument
This memorial, in Sighthill Cemetery, commemorates several members of the Leiper family, including the architect William Leiper.
Sighthill Cemetery
The cemetery was laid out in 1840, under the guidance of Mr Stewart Murray, on twelve acres of land; it has been extended since then. Originally, plots were sold by the Sighthill Cemetery Company Limited, who owned the land and the cemetery; however, that company went into liquidation in July 1954, and the cemetery subsequently came under the control of Glasgow Corporation (forerunner of Glasgow City Council).
