Location: Tresta Road, Glasgow G23 5AA
Map Reference: NS 575 696

Maryhill Crematorium has been in operation since 1895, one of the first in the UK and the first in Scotland. There is only one CWGC casualty listed for WW1 as being cremated there.

The CWGC Website lists that there are 74 Identified Casualties and there are 74 names listed on the main external panel, but it appears that there was also one man from WW1 whom I couldn't find any trace of. The 9 panels list the individuals alphabetically except for ther last two names at the bottom right hand panel.

Inside a small room at the side of the garden housing the Book of Remembrance, I found another 4 plaques, two of them commemorating two of the men on the main panel, another who is commemorated at Tower Hill Memorial and lastly, one commemorating a whole family killed 13th March 1941.

I will post all the photos (of the main memorial) at the beginning of this thread then add each person's CWGC listing alphabetically, each on a separate so if any point further info is discovered, it will be easier to edit.





This section is on the opposite side of the garden to the 'Remembrance Room'.
There is no plaque commemorating the single WW1 man (Samuel Ireland), who's ashes are stored in the Columbarium (see his individual entry)



After having a chat with the Crematorium Supervisor, he very kindly offered to inform me if he comes across any other war related death not listed under CWGC.
