    *Burials and Monumental Inscriptions

    The Lanarkshire area has a large number of cemeteries. There is always a lot of interest on the Lanarkshire board regarding burial information and whether any monumental (gravestone) inscriptions may be available for an ancestor. This post tries to pull together the large number of posts throughout the Board and includes a link to that specific post here on RootsChat for a particular cemetery. Also included here are some external links that are available to search. Please be aware that some external sites make a charge for more detailed information and/or photographs, though basic information may be free. All information or material in this list contributed by RootsChat members is offered voluntarily and at no cost.

    Lists of some of the cemeteries for Lanarkshire are available here:

    *Burials and Monumental Inscriptions cont/.

    Published Monumental Inscriptions (free to view on-line):

    External Sites:
    • www.memento-mori.co.uk
    • www.findagraveinscotland.com
    • www.deceasedonline.com
    • Check individual local history societies' publication lists for details of booklets and CDs available to purchase directly from them.
    • Although not available to view or search on-line, the Mitchell Library is a great source for cemetery information including burials and MIs where available. Also worth checking directly with the offices of the North and South Lanarkshire Archives to see what records they may hold and other main local reference libraries in the area.

    Hi,

    I am the Librarian in Hamilton Library, we have 4 distinct reference libraries - Hamilton Town House, East Kilbride Central, Lanark and Rutherglen. With unique collections, archives and resources. If you would like to contact each branch the details are as follows-

    Who to contact
       Hamilton Town House Library, Reference Department, tel:01698 452121
       e-mail: hamilton.reference "at" library.s-lanark.org.uk

       East Kilbride Central Library, Reference Department, tel:01355 220046
       e-mail: eastkilbride.reference "at" library.s-lanark.org.uk

       Rutherglen Library, Reference Department, tel:0141 613 5380
       e-mail: rutherglen.reference "at" library.s-lanark.org.uk

       Lanark Library, Reference Department, tel:01555 661144
       e-mail: lanark.ref "at" library.s-lanark.org.uk

    We have local collections, news papers, family and local history resources and many authors who research in our library donate their works. In Hamilton also house the Town Council Minutes and the Duke of Hamilton's Estate papers as well as the full run of the Hamilton Advertiser from 1856 as well as other smaller shorter run publications.

    Thanks
    Scott Broadfoot
