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
