Brunton Deaths 1927 and 1929 Peebles
« on: Wednesday 02 October 13 16:38 BST (UK) »
I'm confused about this one.

David Brunton died in 1929 in Edinburgh, buried at Peebles. Aged 84. That I understand.

In the same grave lair is buried another David Brunton, seemingly died 1927. I cannot find any death for him.

What I can find is an infant, called David Brunton, who died in Peebles aged 0 in 1929.


So, are the dates on the grave lair records wrong - 1927 and 1929. There is no grave stone, only grave markers.

Does anyone know a 1927 or 1929 David Brunton death other than the 84 year old?

9's and 7's can look similar depending on how they are written so it may be a simple transcription error
