There's no death entry showing on SP though (searching with wildcards for a K*n*  K*r*s*)....

The first name may appear as the 'English' version- Xenia.
I can move this thread to Ireland-General board but unfortunately, as has already been mentioned, the online civil registration index stops at 1958.

I've tried searching a *n*a for the first name...and still nothing (with a wider year range as well for the death). If she (?) did die in Scotland, can't figure out how the first (and second) name has been indexed!

The place is 'Collon, Eire, Ireland' as it is in the Russian book "Nezabytye mogily" ('The graves not to forget').
Besides, she, Ksenia (or Xenia) had other relatives buried in Ireland.

When Julia is back, hope she will confirm that the place is in Ireland.

Now that the exact place has been confirmed I've moved this thread to Louth board and changed the title slightly so no one wonders why a post looking for a Scottish place is on an Irish board.

That's great Shane - all confirmed  :)

Mike, I've had a look at this book you mentioned "Nezabytye mogily" - looks a goldmine of info, if I could only understand it given it looks to be in Russian!

yes Monica, it is in Russian and about Russians (also with UK, French, German roots) who died and were buried outside of Russia. 6 volumes of priceless information.

Possible a death of a child of this couple :

 Name: Ilya Couriss
 Registration district:   Drogheda
 Event type: Death
 Quarter and year: Oct-Dec 1934
 Age:   8  (est. year of birth 1926)
 Volume :2 / Page : 185

The death is also indexed under the surname 'Conriss'. Drogheda is the registration district just east of the one that covers Collon.

I cant see a corresponding birth in the area... maybe Ilya was born outside Ireland ?
