Mortuary Chapel

Situated in Arbroath's Western Cemetery in E Angus, the Mortuary Chapel was designed and built in 1884 by the owner of Hospitalfield House, Patrick Allan-Fraser (1813-96) as a mausoleum for himself and his family. A grand edifice of Neo-Gothic architecture, the Chapel has stonework, created by Fraser's stonemason, John Peters, unrivalled by anything in Scotland, including carvings of a traditional Highland funeral procession. It was gifted to Arbroath Town Council as a non-denominational chapel.
