St Thomas Cemetery, Cambusbarron :: Shared Description

An information panel near the entrance states that Stirling Burgh Council was given approval on the 25th of January 1949 to purchase land here near St Thomas Well to be used as a burial ground, Stirling's existing Old Town Cemeteries by then being full. By November of the same year, the land had been approved for use as a burial ground for the burgh of Stirling. As mentioned on the panel, St Thomas Well is nearby. Also related there (though probably apocryphal) is that, on the eve of the Battle of Bannockburn, Robert the Bruce and his army were blessed using water from local wells, and that, after the victory, people attributed a supernatural efficacy to those wells' water.
