Memorial to Andrew Connal Arthur
This much-defaced memorial is the work of A. Carleton Smyth.

The inscription commemorates Andrew Connal Arthur, who died on the 20th March, 1917, aged 22; also, Andrew Arthur of Rosemount, Monkton, who died on the 23rd of August, 1936, aged 73, and his wife Elizabeth F. Connal, who died on the 19th of October, 1957, aged 93.

The inscription does not provide any further information. However, the last two names given above are those of Andrew Connal Arthur's parents: Elizabeth Frankland Connal and Andrew Arthur (who was a Major in the Queen's Own Royal Glasgow Imperial Yeomanry).
Western Necropolis

The cemetery was laid out in 1882. St Kentigern's R.C. Cemetery (1882) Link adjoins it on the east; Lambhill Cemetery (1881) is just to the north-east.
