Duncan Street Burial Ground :: Shared Description

This burial ground, created on land feued in 1816, is adjacent to the earlier Inverkip Street Burial Ground LinkExternal link but it was, at first, separate from it (see LinkExternal link for a more detailed history). An original entrance from Duncan St was closed after that street was levelled; an opening to the adjacent Inverkip Street Burial Ground was then created instead. "Renfrewshire MI pre-1855" (vol 1) has all of the inscriptions. The Duncan Street Burial Ground is discussed in the last few pages of LinkExternal link (PDF).

These Shared Descriptions are common to multiple images. For example, you can create a generic description for an object shown in a photo, and reuse the description on all photos of the object. All descriptions are public and shared between contributors, i.e. you can reuse a description created by others, just as they can use yours.
