Burials in Mar's Wark Cemetery are administered by Stirling Council, Scotland..
Mar's Wark Cemetery (officially named Mars Place Cemetery), is located between the old Mar's Wark townhouse and Valley Cemetery. The cemetery is named after the famous "Mar's Wark" a townhouse that dates back to 1570, built by John Earl of Mar, the then Governor of Stirling Castle.
It is one of the five adjoining cemeteries that make up the greater "Old Town Cemetery". The other four cemeteries are Valley Cemetery, Holy Rude Churchyard, Drummond Pleasure Ground, and Ladies' Rock. Snowdon Cemetery, which is also adjacent to these five cemeteries, is generally not considered to be part of the Old Town Cemeteries.
Mar's Wark Cemetery was created as a result of Valley Cemetery. Valley Cemetery (located adjacent, west side of Mar's Wark) was opened in 1857, and burials there grew rapidly. Eventually they spread into the Mar's Wark Garden (the present-day location of the cemetery). Over time, the Mar's Wark Garden area became known as "Mar's Wark Cemetery", and today officially named, "Mars Place Cemetery".
