Glasgow Ramshorn Kirk and Graveyard was built in 1826 on Ingram Street in Glasgow City Centre, and was known as St David’s Parish Church but became known by the citizens’ of Glasgow as “Ramshorn Kirk”.

Ramshorn Graveyard is one of the oldest burial grounds in Glasgow; many of Glasgow’s wealthy merchants are buried here. Also, Mr Pierre Emile L’Angelier who is believed poisoned with arsenic by Miss Madeleine Smith is buried here.

Glasgow Ramshorn Kirk and Graveyard was bought by Strathclyde University in 1990s and was, until 2011, used as a theatre and exhibition venue.

The burial ground has interesting, visible, evidence on how families tried to protect their lost ones from grave robbing/bodysnatching.

I was delighted when I was asked if a couple of my photographs from Ramshorn Burial Grounds could be used for the “Echos of the Resurrection Men“‘s website.
