William Ramage

William Ramage was an architect active in the mid-19th century, especially in Aberdeen, Scotland. From around 1834, Ramage worked with the architect Archibald Simpson, first as his apprentice, then as his assistant. He later succeeded to Simpson's practice on his death on 23 March 1847.

Ramage's chief architectural client was the Episcopal Church, of which he was a member. During the 1830s and 1840s Ramage also taught architectural and mechanical drawing at the Mechanics Institute. In 1854 he designed the walled garden and north lodge at Keith Hall in Aberdeenshire.

Ramage died on 15 August 1866, aged 46. He was buried at St Clement's, Footdee, where a large granite monument celebrates his life.
