I was wondering if anyone here would be so kind to point me in the right direction or help me to find information on where two of my great grandparents are buried, James Stocks and his wife Catherine (nee Rice).

They both lived mostly and brought up their family in Helensburgh, although Catherine died on 11th August 1916 in Duntocher aged 46, and James died in Victoria Infirmary in Glasgow on 5th November 1918 aged 43.  James had remarried just 3 days prior to his death to Annie Gemmell.

I have been using the ancestry.co.uk and scotlandspeople websites but cant seem to find out anything more.

Thanks very much in advance for any help or information you can give me.

Kind regards

Derek Stocks

Probably at Helensburgh which falls within Argyle & Bute Council. If you contact them providing death details they can check to see if they are there.

Hi Rosie, thank you very much for the welcome and reply. I received a reply from A&B Council today from my request for information to them telling me to contact Cardross crematorium. I haven't had chance to contact them yet but am wondering if they have information. I shall phone them tomorrow and will let you know what I find. Thanks very much again for the offer, I may well have to take you up on it yet, or ask your expertise on some other family members.

Kind regards

Derek
