Arkleston Cemetery

According to Renfrewshire Council's website, the cemetery, which is beside Arkleston Road, opened on the 7th of April 1902. Its present-day northern half corresponds to its original extent, and a stone wall that runs from east to west through the middle of the cemetery indicates the original southern boundary. The area that now makes up the southern half was added to the cemetery before the Second World War.
