Greenock Cemetery
Greenock Cemetery
The cemetery is built on Bow Hill. This picture was taken at one of the cemetery's high points (the summit of Bow Hill lies a little outside its boundaries).

A little beyond the rise shown in this picture is the Rankin Memorial, worth mentioning here, because it is marked on street maps of Greenock, and some readers may therefore wonder what it is: it is a Garden of Remembrance once associated with the Rankin Memorial Hospital; it occupies the northwestern extremity (the highest end) of the cemetery: NS2576 : Greenock Cemetery: Rankin Memorial Garden.
Greenock Cemetery
The cemetery, which is laid out on Bow Hill, opened in 1846.
