Crematoria

South Lanarkshire Crematorium Sydes Brae, Blantyre, G7 0TL

Prior to the opening of the South Lanarkshire Crematorium, many South Lanarkshire cremations will have taken place at either Daldowie Crematorium or Linn Crematorium.

Daldowie Crematorium (1955) Hamilton Road, Broomhouse, Uddingston

Linn Cemetery and Crematorium (1961) Lainshaw Drive

It is also worth noting that Clydebank Crematorium in West Dumbartonshire is also used by Glasgow folk.
