How fantastic to see all the conifers now removed from the Dixon’s Memorial Obelisk in High Blantyre Cemetery AND new entrance, grass, chips and cordoned off area re-installed as it once was! The memorial now having a commanding view over to the common ground (the green space at the back right) where many of those poor souls from the 1877 Disaster are buried.

Well done the council!

Alan Baird fantastic job , well done to all those concerned

Betty McLean Feeling so grateful to the present council for the beautiful work done. when visiting each year I felt sadness at the overgrowth around the memorial.M

Eleanor Clark Do wish they would now do something in Larkhall headstones falling down ,and conifers planted at graves growing up to 10ft high which will eventually knock headstones next to them down
