Greenside Cemetery; Bonthrone Gravestone?
« on: Friday 23 January 09 20:24 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
If anyone happens to be going to Alloa Greenside cemetery, I'd love to know if there is a stone in plot:150 - Section C . I'm looking for a David S Bonthrone, buried 12th April 1909.
Thanks v. much

Hi,

According to Clackmannanshire M.I. there doesn't appear to be a gravestone in Greenside Cemetery containing the Bonthrone name.  The name Bonthrone isn't listed at all in the book.

That is strange, Jim.
It was the clacks cemeteries dept that gave me the burial info! Thanks for checking for me anyway.

Hi,

According to Clackmannanshire M.I. listings no.150 in Greenside Cemetery, which I presume, to be the plot number,  is occupied by the families Gibson and Vance.

That is strange. I have double-checked my email from landserv, and it says
David Stage Bonthron in Greenside Cemetery Lair No 150 Section C . I'll need to get back in touch with them and ask them to check again.
Thanks Jim.

I think there might be some confusion here between the lair number and the numbering system used in the Mitchell's MI book.  As far as I know, that system bears no relation to the lair number but is simply a key to use in conjunction with their location maps. Also, as the Mitchell's only recorded MI relating to pre-1855 events, your Bonthrone stone, if it exists, wouldn't be listed.

Hoe this helps to clarify, unfortunately I won't be going anywhere near the area soon so I can't help with your look-up.

Aha, that makes sense Joyce.
I'll just keep the request here in case someone local happens by.
Thanks  :)

Hi Hermit

Did Clacks Council give you a map? or directions inside?
Am in Alloa once or twice a week so could go look, but need to know where plot and sections are - it's quite big and I've never been inside.

Hi Buzzy,
That would be fantastic. No, they didn't give me any idea how the plots are laid out. I'll email them tonight and see if I can get some more info, & let u know.
Thanx,
Hermit.
