New Calton Cemetery
Also known as:  Calton New Cemetery

This cemetery was opened in 1820 and lies to the south of Regent Road and to the east of the Canongate kirkyard. It was created in part to re-inter the remains from Old Calton Burial Ground when Waterloo Place was constructed. There are some early 18th Century monuments the old cemetery and a watch-tower to guard against body-snatching; there was at one time a lucrative market for anatomical research.
