Cathcart Cemetery Summer Tour Programme

About Cathcart Cemetery Summer Tour Programme

During the tour, we'll explore how the Cemetery came to be and the Victorian attitude to death, visit the graves of some of the notable people buried there, including pioneers of Scottish and world Football, artists, musicians, and vaudeville acts and invite you to think about how you can help Cathcart Cemetery thrive in the 21st century.

Meeting place: Outside the Gatehouse, 100 Brenfield Road, G44 3JW

COVID Guidance
• Online booking is essential for track and trace. Your details will be retained for a period of 21 days and only for track and trace purposes.
• While it is not mandatory to wear a face-covering outdoors, we would recommend you wear one as there are some areas of the Cemetery where social distancing could be difficult.
• We would remind tour-goers to maintain social distancing where ever possible.
• Spaces on the tour are limited to 20 people.
• Face-coverings and hand-gels will be available from our guides

Accessibility
Unfortunately, parts of the Cemetery are not accessible to wheelchair users or those with mobility issues. We would recommend stout footwear, as areas may be muddy.

There are no on-site toilets and no food or drink is available.

The Friends of Cathcart Cemetery are part of Visit Scotland's Good to Go Certification Scheme.

With your help, we can continue to explore the stories of Cathcart Cemetery and ensure that the Cemetery is a place of local heritage, remembrance and wellbeing.
