Description

The Linn Cemetery, opened in 1961, is the newest cemetery in Glasgow. Covering 60 acres, it was estimated at the time to have a future period of use of over a century. Part of the site is on a steep hill, which has been terraced to allow for ease of access. Earth removed from the Clyde Tunnel, built at around the same time, was used to landscape the cemetery. The size of the burial ground, overlooking the River Cart, ensures a peaceful atmosphere for quiet contemplation. Special provision has been made at the cemetery for children. In 2003 a special Infant Memorial Garden was created close to the SANDS (Stillbirths and Neonatal Deaths Society) Memorial Garden and Infant Burial Ground. At Christmas 2004, a Family Remembrance Carol Service was held at the adjacent Linn Crematorium to allow grieving families, in particular those who have endured the loss of a child, to come together and reflect.
