New burial plots will be made available at Woodside Cemetery and Crematorium for the first time in a quarter of a century.

A total of 90 new plots will soon be available at the iconic garden cemetery in Paisley’s Broomlands Street.

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

He said: “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.”

You must register your interest now in order to get an appointment from the 24th of April to view and purchase a plot.

The first ten people to register interest in a plot will qualify for a reduced price of £1,450 for the newly created lairs. You can register your interest on the website at

The news is the latest development in a series of investment announcements at the Paisley site. Extensive renovations have taken place at Marty’s Chapel and outbuildings, whilst its new funeral director service, Woodside Family Funeral Directors, has opened on the site – a first for a Scottish crematorium.

Woodside 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 and stunning views across Renfrewshire.
