Sighthill Cemetery :: Shared Description

The cemetery was laid out in 1840, under the guidance of Mr Stewart Murray, on twelve acres of land; it has been extended since then. Originally, plots were sold by the Sighthill Cemetery Company Limited, who owned the land and the cemetery; however, that company went into liquidation in July 1954, and the cemetery subsequently came under the control of Glasgow Corporation (forerunner of Glasgow City Council).
