Hello Spot54.

Welcome to RootsChat.

You mention Denis and his sons. You give us Denis death. Why do you think that he was buried in Airdrie?

The more definate information that you can share with us, the better chance that a knowledgable rootschatter, can assist you, with your search.

Wishing you well.

Was he RC? He may be buried in St Joseph's RC cemetery

 sancti  yes thats him but the age is wrong as he would have been 67 in 1922 but its the same man I wonder did he have any family living with him when he died or even if he Married again hopefully I will find his other sons Hugh and Denis in the Airdrie area     sancti Thankyou so much for your help Robert

Did you check his death certificate to see if a member of the family signed it?

sancti I have not got his death certificate yet but im sure one of his sons did as Denis jnr lived in Airdrie at the time he went to the usa in 1923 and his brother Francis went in 1924 and died there in 1982 but I cant find Denis and think he might have come back home but as I said I cant find him or his Brother Hugh there other brother John was my Grandfather and stayed in Belfast     Robert
