missmilly,  Catherine H JOHNSTON wife of John W. AULD  Lindean Farm died 12-9-1955 aged 56  and is buried in Shawfield Cemetery. No trace John in any Selkirk cemetery.Suggest you get her birth ,Marriage and death cert for all the answers.

Lindean Farmhouse is evidently still in existence. If you Google it you'll find it is currently the Selkirk office for Cancer UK with a map showing its location.

Hi , Thanks for the information so far.
I have found out  John William Auld was born 26-02 1899 & died in hospital of throat cancer in 1965 but can not find a date. John is said to have had a shop in Edinburgh  sometime after 1955 but I do not know what sort of shop. He was cremated so I need some help to find where his ashes ended up.
John & Catherine Hunter Johnstone married in 1922 on 22nd February, again I can not find out where.
Also would anyone have any idea as to why Catherine had not taken the name Auld ? ???

Hello again, I have some more information on great grandparents and would now like to find how many children they may have had and who they were ect. Please  can somebody point me in the right direction so I don't waste more credits looking in the wrong places.
So far I have:
John William Auld married Catherine Hunter Johnstone????
Thomas Auld married Marion Denholm Young at Cramond in 1891(05 June)?
Thomas Auld married Ann Leitch in Bathgate in 1963(20 March)?
Thomas Auld married Elizabeth McKenzie in Colinton 1837 (09 June)? 2nd marriage.

Any information on these people and there offspring would be very much appreciated, or any clues as to where to look for them.
Many thanks in hope.

Hi,
   Going back to the one before this if you know where your grandfather died in 1965 and if it was Edinburgh it should be easy enough to find where his actual cremation took place as these are the crematoriums in the area.
Mortonhall, Seafield and Warriston.

Good luck with your research.

Were you able to confirm that the marriage to Marion Denholm Young in 1891 is your family?

The Denholms and the Youngs were from Broomrig in Dumfries (according to Horse Tax rolls etc) - the Youngs were of Gullyhill/Gulliehill.

Miss Milly  Sometime last month i noticed a death in the local paper for an AULD from Lindean. Maybe the local undertaker LOWs in Selkirk could help.
