The structure on the left is the NS6065 : William Rae Wilson mausoleum. To its right, with statues flanking the entrance, is the John Houldsworth Mausoleum.

As for the statues, the one on the left represents Hope; Charity is on the right, and Faith is inside. See NS6065 : "Charity" (the John Houldsworth Mausoleum) and NS6065 : "Faith" (the John Houldsworth Mausoleum). See the first of those links for further information about the mausoleum.

A little further away, on the right, is the NS6065 : Memorial to Charles Clark Mackirdy.

For a wider view of the same area, see NS6065 : Glasgow Necropolis (taken only a hour or two after my own picture; compare, for example, the shadows at the sides of the steps of the William Rae Wilson mausoleum). See also NS6065 : Unsafe, keep out! and NS6065 : Glasgow Necropolis.
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.
