Object detail

Name/title notes
Local authorities were given authority to fund and operate cemeteries from 1855. Church graveyards were the responsibility of Heritors until in 1894 parish councils or town councils were allowed to accept responsibility for church graveyards from the Heritors. In 1925 all remaining Church of Scotland church graveyards were transferred into the care of the parish councils (which were replaced by district councils from 1930) or the town councils. Some cemeteries were run by Joint Committees of two or more local authorities.
Responsibility for cemeteries and the crematorium transferred to Falkirk District Council in 1975
