ST ANDREW'S CHURCHYARD, Main Road, Alexandria.

ACCESS : Currently vacant. Church and churhyard are locked up. 

B listed.

The churchyard is listed together with St Andrew's Church, but deserves a closer look in its own right. A key feature is the Smollett Mausoleum which is located on the rear boundary wall, but there are also several other tombstones of interest. 

As with so many cemetries, and in particular those of vacated churches, there is a high proportion of damaged tombstones. Even the Smollett Mausoleum against the rear is suffering badly. Note the "tombstones" made of cast iron.

A general view down the north side.

That is the Smollett Mausoleum in the background.

These are along the north boundary wall backing onto the Co-Op.

These are along the side boundary wall with Church Street.

The iron tombstones are also susceptible to severe damage.
