 Mortuary Chapel at Arbroath's Western Cemmetry....pic shows Patrick Allan-Fraser

In 1873 the architect Patrick Allan-Fraser's wife, Elizabeth Allan-Fraser, died, an event which was the catalyst for the building of the Fraser family Mortuary Chapel in Arbroath Cemetery from 1875 onwards.The building has many elaborate carvings including animals and ferns which Elizabeth loved.
It was later gifted to the people of Arbroath as a non-denominational chapel, with maintenance of the structure being the responsibility of the Patrick Allan-Fraser of Hospitalfield Trust.

In 1843 Patrick Allan married the widowed heiress to the Hospitalfield estate, Elizabeth Fraser. He was the son of a weaving merchant in Arbroath. After initially embarking on a commercial career he changed to studying art in Edinburgh and then on the Continent. On their marriage he changed his name to Patrick Allan-Fraser. He embarked on a programme of estate management which quickly restored the family fortunes.
