|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The monastery at Arbroath was consecrated in the name of St Thomas a Becket in 1178 and it’s founder, King William the Lion, was buried within it in 1214. After the Reformation, the buildings were dismantled and no further burials took place in the church and chapter House, but instead in the old cemetery to the north, mentioned in 1517 and which continued to be used until the 20th Century. It has been “tidied” with the headstones now in straight rows.
