Autumn in Rosebank Cemetery

graves in Rosebank Cemetery

Rosebank Cemetery was opened in 1846 by the Edinburgh and Leith Cemetery Company. The cemetery includes a mass grave, marked by a Celtic cross, of 215 men of the Royal Scots who came from Edinburgh and Leith and who were killed in the Gretna Rail Disaster of 1915. The cemetery also contains the memorials of many Leith ship-owners and merchants, and of two servants of Queen Victoria. There is also a small Moslem section.
