The Southern Necropolis was opened in 1840 and is the final resting place of over 250,000 contributors to the unique historical jig-saw of the history of Glasgow (and beyond).

Our Friends of Southern Necropolis "Resurrecting & Preserving History Project" helps us to link up with local primary schools, and deliver a set of unique educational sessions that cover various aspects of the curriculum. We will introduce the pupils (and teachers) to the history and characters of the cemetery, the various monuments and their inscriptions, and include on site visits for a History Walk and Litter Pick to promote the environmental importance of the Southern Necropolis.

Through the Project we also promote and raise the profile of the cemetery via visits to local libraries, community/history groups, and regular tours for visitors interested in the heritage trail within the three sections.

We are also continuing to research and help record various historical archives preserving the story of the Southern Necropolis.

Any donations would be more than welcome to help us to continue to promote and preserve the important historical, educational and environmental assets of the Southern Necropolis.

Enjoyed our visit back to St Francis Primary, and the pupils are very keen to get started on learning about the many aspects of the Southern Necropolis. Introduced them to some of the history and characters relating to the setting up of the cemetery, back in 1840.
