Hi
I have had a great help from Motherwell Heritage Centre in Motherwell. The assistant found the lair number of my great grandparents buriel area. Unfortunately on a visit I could not find the grave.

I have also just been given by a second cousin the certificate for the lair bought in 1892 by my Great Great Grandfather. My next quest is to go back to the heritage centre and find out if my GGGrandfather and GGGrandmother are also buried in the lair.
So far I have William Alexander, sarah Clarke (Alexander) and their son Stanley Alexander.

If anyone comes across Lair 110b, can you let me know?

Good luck to all

M

Hi M,

Glad to hear you had success in finding the lair details you were looking for at the Globe, The database they have there is a massive help. As you'll have seen the graveyard is in a sorry state after years of neglect and vandalism. Looking at your photograph I would reckon the lair sits to the righthand side of the top ash path. If you have a look at PIC5 on here you'll see a stone which looks like a marble pillar this looks very similar to the one behind your grave in your photograph and is also facing the correct way to be looking at the factories in the distance. The best way to actually find your grave is to contact Ian at Airbles Cemetery as he knows tha layout and is very helpful and would probably meet you there to assist you.

Thanks. I have walked around the area so many times, I think that the head stone must be missing.
Another visit and contact with Ian I agree is the best way to go.

Although all points to lair 110b, when I visited the Motherwell Heritage Centre the man looked at a map of the cemetary and could not find Alexander on the map of lair names and numbers, but my ancestors are definately buried there, according to the certificate, their (Motherwell Heritage Centre) CD  and my Great Aunt.

Thankl you again
M

i eventually founf the globe cemetary.  If you know Motherwell go into Milton Street  from Muir Street drive past the post office and head for an area lnown locally as the Stadium.  You can park your car and walk right across the grass area untill you come to a path.  It looks a bit doggy but if you follow the path downhill you come to a bridge where you have to turn right just follow thi road and it leads you to the Globe Cemetary.  I would wear Wellies if you are thinking of visiting.  the locals use as a dirt bike track.  hope this helps .Mags C

Duckman, I am searching for Muircrofts from a long distance away.  My family connection is Through Helen Muircroft Henderson, daughter of Charles Muircroft and Jessie Cairns.  I've noticed your list includes both Muircroft and Cairns.  Helen (Nell) came to America with her husband, James Henderson and 6 children while pregnant with her 7th child.  She had a total of 11.  My mother in law is her youngest, and knows nothing of mother nor her father's families.  She is in her 80's and I would like to give her this information.  Can we communicate.  I am new to this site and not sure how to directly speak to you.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you. 



Thanks Gerry, I did manage to find my way into the Globe Cem, but did not find any of my family, [Muircrofts] although from death records I know some of them are in there.  Most of the stones had been vandalised or pushed over, face down.  Did manage to get some photo's.  Will have to try and get through to the Heritage Centre to look through their records sometime.
My mothers name is Farrell, she came from the Law. Her father came from Penrith and Grandfather from Baltinglass in Co. Wicklow.

Hi

Looking for ancestors I recently visited the Globe Cemetery in Motherwell, although I didn't find what I was looking for I took pictures of some of the remaining headstones and transcriptions.  I'll make a list and if anyone is interested would post it on the site or send it to them personally.
