I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Ghost Of A Man Committing Suicide

The ghost of a man committing suicide haunts Dalmarnock Bridge in Glasgow. He is thought to be 30 years of age with short hair and wearing a blue three quarter length coat and black trousers. People who have witnessed the haunting describe the ghost of a man committing suicide as looking real, solid and normal until he jumps from the Dalmarnock Bridge and vanishes into thin air and never hits the water below the Bridge. During the haunt he looks long into the River Clyde before jumping from the Bridge and committing suicide. The identity or name of the ghost is not known nor is the reason for his death by suicide.

History Of Dalmarnock Bridge

There was a Ford at Dalmarnock and in 1821 a timber pay bridge was built for traffic crossing between Rutherglen and Dalmarnock.

In 1846 Dalmarnock became a District of the City of Glasgow.

The timber bridge was replaced in1848 with another wooden bridge.

The construction that can be seen today was built in 1891, near to the original Dalmarnock Ford. The engineers were Crouch and Hogg. The Dalmarnock Road Bridge was the first bridge over the River Clyde to have a flat road surface.

The Dalmarnock Bridge is supported by concrete filled wrought iron cylinders that end on the bedrock 65 feet below the river bed and there are five spans stretching across the Dalmarnock Bridge.

The Dalmarnock Bridge was renovated in 1997 and the bridge deck was replaced with a reinforced concrete deck slab and weather resistant steal beams. The historical Gothic parapets were retained as were the ornamental outer beam facia panels and along with these pieces of history the Dalmarnock Bridge suicide ghost remains and sightings of the ghost hauntings are often reported.
