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.
