As seen from the street, this inscribed tablet is on the right-hand side of the entrance that is shown in NS2776 : Old graveyard (it does not appear in that picture, which was taken before the tablet was installed).

See NS2776 : Burial place of John Galt.
Inverkip Street Burial Ground
This burial ground opened in 1787; the existing one at the Old West Kirk had, by then, proved too small for Greenock's growing population. See a Geograph article Link for a more detailed history. For all of the inscriptions, see "Renfrewshire MI pre-1855" (vol 1). The adjacent Duncan Street Burial Ground Link was created in 1816. These grounds were closed up in 1859, having been superseded by Greenock Cemetery: Link
The Inverkip Street Burial Ground is discussed in the last few pages of LinkExternal link (PDF).
