Balmenoch Creiff
« on: Wednesday 31 July 13 12:20 BST (UK) »
Hello
A great Aunt of mine died in 1900 at the age of 26 of Typhus fever,whilst working as a domestic servant at an address in Creiff.
Can anyone advise me on how I would find who lived at this address in 1901, just being extremely nosey and want to try to find out something about the family that she would have worked for. The address on the death certificate is Balmenoch Creiff.
Many thanks

yes it did that to me you need to put in Perthshire for the county and crieff for the residential place then it should be ok .

Have done as Trevor suggested and put in Crieff and Perthshire in the address search. I've been through all the streets and I can't see Balmenoch.

Lots of house names but the closest is Balmiden  :(

Hi Aileen
Balmenoch was a large property in Crieff which overlooked MacRosty Park. I believe it burnt down and was replaced with a more modern building. It was located between Comrie Road and Gwydr Road on Crieff. Your spelling of Crieff may account for not finding anything in searches.
Hope this helps.
