Cemeteries

and

Graveyards

Below are lists of:

Cemeteries:  Many of these are quite large.  They cater for a whole area, rather than a single church.  I believe that the list below includes most or all of Edinburgh's cemeteries.

Graveyards:  These are often quite small.  They are (or were) located beside churches.  Only a very small proportion of Edinburgh's graveyards are included in the list below.
