Wellogate Cemetery Headstone
« on: Sunday 12 June 16 21:13 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am wondering if someone can help me. I am looking for a photo of my biological Great Grandmothers headstone. Margaret (Thomson) Taylor (1861-1939) and my step Great Grandfather John Taylor (1851-1913). They are buried in the Wellogate Cemetery, according to john Taylor's obit. Thanking you in advance for any help!
Cheers,
Murray

your request may be a tall order for someone - wellogate cemetery is the largest cemetery in Hawick and their is no guarantee there is a stone, not every burial has a stone - your best bet is to get a lair number and grid reference from the local authority's burial services office first.

looking at the dates you gave it has a good chance in being in the lower sections of the cemetery

but that cemetery has been used since the 1840's

Thanks Terianne, I will have to do some more research I guess, as I live in Canada and don't have a clue on where to begin

the Local Authority you need to contact is Scottish Borders Council

Your can get all the info about the services available online - burial services can do searches for lairs in  a cemetery

looking at the liar number - it would suggest they are buried in the older part of the cemetery - i have liar nos in the 2000's and they are all in and around the Herriot end in the section beween the lodge and the back wall/gate/trees nr the covered bench, before you hit the newer sections  and the hill.
