All you need to know about the Hawkhead Cemetery works

As part of a £1million investment in our cemeteries, we will be undertaking improvement works to Hawkhead Cemetery from 15 July 2019.

The works will include resurfacing of the internal roads, repairing kerbs and improving the drainage system.

    • A small entrance further down Hawkhead Road will also be open for pedestrians.
  • The main path from the entrance to the monument will be closed, including a short section of the path on each side.

Can I still access all areas of the cemetery?

Yes, all areas will be open for funerals and visitors.

We're working closely with local funeral directors to ensure that all appropriate arrangements can be made and facilitated during the works.

There is a leaflet attached to this page which outlines how to access each area of the cemetery and these are also available at the entrances to Hawkhead too.
