This picture was taken in the newer (southern) half of the cemetery, whose high point is in the area shown in the background. See NS5065 : Arkleston Cemetery for a view from there.

In the foreground is an NS5065 : Old drinking fountain; it stands near an entrance (not the main entrance), which was locked at the time.

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.
