Gravestone of John Mossman
Gravestone of John Mossman
The John Mossman commemorated here was the son of the well-known Glasgow sculptor of the same name. John Mossman senior (1817-1890) created many of the memorials in this cemetery, and he belonged to a family that produced many sculptors.

The inscription reads as follows: "In memory of John Mossman, sculptor, who died 28th January, 1943, aged 79 years. His wife, Margaret Agnes Cumnock, who died 5th June, 1936, aged 65 years. Their son John George, 3rd Officer H.M. Transport Lord Ormonde, who died 19th November, 1918, aged 25 years. Their daughter Catherine Edith, who died 9th February, 1957, aged 52 years. Their daughter Mary Simpson, who died 6th May, 1984, aged 88 years."
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).
