10. Landscaping for the Dead: The Garden Cemetery Movement in Dundee and Angus1
This paper sets out to examine the origins and development of the nineteenth century Garden Cemetery Movement in Scotland, focusing particular attention on surviving documentary and field evidence from Dundee and Angus. Consideration is given to the people involved in the movement, and to some of the influences upon them. In this part of Scotland, at least, the creation of garden cemeteries can be seen to have brought together individuals with a range of skills in civil engineering, architecture and gardening, drawing them into what soon became a specialised field of cemetery design.
