Trinity Cemetery

A substantial cemetery located on rolling slopes in NE Aberdeen, Trinity Cemetery lies to the south of Pittodrie Stadium and a quarter-mile (0.4 km) west of Broad Hill. Opened in 1887, the cemetery is uncluttered by bushes or trees and comprises two sections divided by Park Road; a larger western section and an eastern extension which opened in the later 20th century on the site of a former gravel pit. Trinity Cemetery is notable as the last resting place of Robert Hichens (1882 - 1940) who was at the wheel of RMS Titanic when it struck the fatal iceberg, but survived. He died while a later ship on which he served was docked in Aberdeen Harbour. The main entrance, with its lodge, is situated on Errol Street.
