Hi,
I didn't find them yesterday, it's a big cemetery and I had a good look through a big chunk of it but couldn't see them, sorry  :( .  I will go again and look round the other parts of the cemetery.

I really appreciate your help Caroline, thank you  :)
I wish I had some sort of idea of exactly where they are; all I know is that they are buried close together in family plots.  Fingers crossed for next time  :)

Just to let you know the Borders Family History Society have produced CD's of the Galashiels MI's  - as far as I'm aware all the Graveyards are covered.

Thank you terrianne, I am aware of the CDs.  Another member had sent me some information but unfortunately it was not my family.

If they are not on the CDs it probably means the grave is either unreadable, no longer there or fallen over.  But I only looked for Hugh so can look for others if you give me the details,  Caroline would then be happy to take a photo I am sure if she knows the grave is there.

Thanks for your offer. I have a weak link, but if you find anything I'd love it! My grandmother left a letter to her sister in 1961 giving her a cemetery plot. I only know that it's in Galashiels, Scotland not which cemetery. If her sister used the plot her name would be: Agnes Weir Allan. I have no idea when she died but it would be after 1961.

If you find anything on the Weir family, her maiden name I would be grateful.

Thanks so much for looking!
