NEW burial plots are being made available at a Renfrewshire cemetery for the first time in a quarter of a century.

A total of 90 new plots will be on offer at Woodside Cemetery and Crematorium, in Paisley.

Robert MacLachlan, group CEO of The Independent Family Funeral Directors, said the move follows decades of enquiries from the public regarding burial space.

He added: “We receive numerous enquiries every month but the layout and lack of space meant that, after 1995, there were no more plots available.

“Thanks to recent investment and works within the grounds, we are pleased to now offer these sought-after plots for the first time in 25 years and we expect there will be considerable interest.”

Woodside – known as 'the garden cemetery' – first opened in 1845 and was designed by architect Stuart Murray.

It’s tree-lined walkways and 20-acre grounds include two gardens of remembrance.

People can register their interest in the new plots ahead of appointments to view getting underway on April 24.
