Scope and Content Gravestone commemorating James Craigie, Glencorse Old Church, Midlothian This gravestone commemorates James Craigie, a tenant farmer, who died in 1713 aged 48. A pair of winged cherubs symbolise the soul ascending to heaven. Their plump-featured faces are unlike the cherubs usually found on Scottish gravestones. The inscription beneath is bordered by a drawn curtain, flanked by Corinthian pilasters. The graveyards of Scotland are an important part of the cultural heritage of the country and can provide fascinating information for people interested in family or local history, as well as vernacular art.
