Edinburgh's Gravestones

Better news from Edinburgh City Council

Following protests over the toppling of unsafe gravestones in some of Edinburgh's cemeteries as part of a safety drive by Edinburgh City Council, the Council appears t to be recognising the historical importance of the City's gravestones, and visitors' interest in the subject.

It now proposes to carry out a study of the city's historic gravestones, and hopes to work together with individuals and private organizations on restoration.  It is also considering seeking lottery funding.
