Mother & Son
Mother & Son
One of Paisley's most poignant sculptures is located here on the northern side of the Broadwalk of Woodside Cemetery (NS4663 : Woodside Cemetery: the Broadwalk). It is by Joseph Whitehead, and it draws on the imagery of Michelangelo's Pietà.

The sculpture is part of a NS4763 : Memorial to Daniel M Duncan, Second Lieutenant, King's Own Scottish Borderers; he was killed in action at Sequehart, France, on the 2nd of December 1918, almost at the end of the war. His grieving mother died only a few weeks later.

Woodside Cemetery

Paisley's Woodside Cemetery was formed in 1845 by the Paisley Cemetery Company Limited, who still own and operate it. The grounds were laid out under the direction of Mr Stewart Murray. The first burial took place on the 29th of August 1845. Woodside Crematorium (officially opened on 28 October 1938 by Lord Salveson) is located within the grounds, as are two distinct martyrs' monuments – Link and Link – and Martyrs' Parish Church: Link
