 Mortuary Chapel at Arbroath's Western Cemmetry...building at risk.

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.

Pic shows the sundial on the south side of the building.
