|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
(Please note: this cemetery is NOT at Bishopbriggs, but at Lennoxtown)
Known locally as both the "Campsie" and "Lennoxtown" Cemetery, this graveyard is part of the Scottish War Graves Project.
This Cemetery is attached to the ruins of Campsie Parish High Kirk. Destroyed by fire in the 1980's, the cornerstone of the Kirk was laid on June 21, 1827. The village of Lennoxtown had longed for a newer, larger church to replace the former "Old" Parish Church at the Clachan of Campsie (also called Campsie Glen).
The "Old" Campsie Church (also in ruins) is the site of St. Machan's Graveyard. Interments prior to the construction of the High Kirk may be located at St. Machan's/Old Campsie Parish Church.
If that's not confusing enough, there is also a town called 'Milton of Campsie' just a short distance down the A891.
