Hi Norrie G, I am interested in the number of Duncan's buried there. My parents visited cousins in 1964 who were batchelor brothers that were men's barbers in the town. I believe one married late in life but no details of the wife. I would love the inscriptions if they are few but an idea of numbers would be appreciated and justify a trip over the Forth to check out. Thanks Sandy

Hi Norrie G,
Thank you so much for your reply. You have answered my question. As I am just across the Forth I can make a trip to check them out. I will leave your very kind and generous gesture for those who are not able to visit. I have scant details at this time anyway. I will look out for you when I visit. Appreciated Sandy

Hi Norrie, first of all thank you for any help you are able to provide!

I am currently researching my Graham family tree and have hit a stumbling block with my Great Grandfather and beyond. His name was George Graham (1883 - 1942) who married Jane (nee Reekie) (1888 - 1937). Would be very grateful if you could confirm if either show on your records and if there is anything for George's parents who were Robert and Jane (either Robb or Finlay?). Dates for Robert and Jane are unknown.

Regards

Hi Norrie, just wondered if you had anything for Hugh Ralph Wildridge (1844- possibly 1913) or his wife Elizabeth Erskine (1843-1882).

Many thanks,
