Warriston Cemetery

Background

Warriston Cemetery, just over a mile to the north of Princes Street, covers a large area beside Warriston Crematorium.

The upper part of the cemetery has gravestones laid out in neat rows.  The lower part has become rather overgrown (but is perhaps now looking better following the recent establishment of the 'Friends Of Warriston Cemetery'.

There are many Victorian gravestones in the cemetery.  When I last visited the cemetery, I found that:

-  some of the these had unfortunately been broken when they were toppled 'Health and Safety' reasons.

-   others had become overgrown.
