History

The cemetery formed the grounds of St Ninian's Church, a pre-Reformation parish church. St Ninian's was abandoned after 1659, following the division of the old parish of Lenzie into Cumbernauld and Kirkintilloch. The watchtower dates from the early 18th century, and the gate lodge was built when the cemetery was extended in 1863.

Notable burials

  • Alexander Bain (1811–1877), first to invent and patent the electric clock.
  • Nicola Ann Raphael (1985–2001), prominent bullycide victim.
  • War Graves

    The cemetery contains the graves of 38 Commonwealth service personnel, 17 from World War I and 21 from World War II.
