Greenock Cemetery Gates

These gates mark the South Street entrance to Greenock Cemetery.  They are B Listed and were designed by architect Charles Wilson of Glasgow and made by McCulloch & Co, Ironfounders, Glasgow. 

The Cemetery was opened in 1846 and was laid out to a plan by Stewart Murray who was the curator of Glasgow's Botanic Gardens.
