On the corner of Beaufort Road and Kilgraston Road on the southside of Edinburgh is the Grange Cemetery. It was laid out in 1847 for the Southern Cemetery Company by architect David Bryce (1803-76), becoming the largest of Edinburgh's cemeteries. At the time it was located on the edge of the city, although today lies between the well-established residential districts of Marchmont and the Grange. The cemetery was constructed on a rectangular pattern around central vaulted catacombs, which were built into the crest of the hill.


The stones seen on the left are section B and those on the right are section C. Section M is at the top of the steps, ontop of the catacombs.

Amongst its residents are mason turned geologist and founder of the Free Church, Hugh Miller (1802-56), who took his own life; architect John T. Rochead (1814-78 ); publishers Thomas Oliver (1775 - 1853) and Thomas Nelson (1780 - 1861), together with his sons; first Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland Thomas Chalmers (1780 - 1847); General Sir James Hope Grant (1808-75), who was a veteran of the Indian Mutiny; together with reformer and another founder of the Free Church, Thomas Guthrie (1803-73). Guthrie's memorial is by noted sculptor Pittendrigh MacGillivray (1856 - 1938).

The cemetery is now maintained by Edinburgh City Council.

According to the CWGC site, there are 40 CWGC stones to be found within the cemetery.
