Neilson (sometimes Nelson) of Bathgate, West Lothain.
« on: Sunday 12 February 17 17:38 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for death details for the parents of 3x great grandmother Janet "Jessie" Hynd née Neilson who was born born between 1831 and 1832 in Armadale near Bathgate but the family (i.e. Jessie and her siblings) identified their birthplaces as Bathgate which they later later moved after their parents apparent deaths.

The parents were James Neilson (born 1800-1) coal miner (pauper in 1851) & Catherine "Kate" McIntosh (born 1800-5) and they appear on the 1841 and 1851 living in the Bathgate parish of Armadale. They are marked as deceased on their children's marriages (Jessie never legally married) but her brothers did; James (c.1823-????; Agnes White m.1844), David (c.1827-????; Martha Anderson m.1854), Alexander (c.1837-1869; Ann Greens m.1858), Ronald (c.1844-1874; Maria Beattie m.1865) and sisters; Catherine (c.1832-1910; William Ure m.1855 later John Hardie m.1884), Margaret (1841-????; Thomas Muir m.1870).

born between 1831 and 1832 in Armadale near Bathgate but the family .... identified their birthplaces as Bathgate ....

Armadale is not 'near' Bathgate in pre-1855 terms. It is actually in the parish of Bathgate, so any baptisms/banns/burials should (in theory) be recorded in the Bathgate parish register. Armadale only became a separate registration district in 1867.

The census asks in which parish people were born, so it is perfectly correct for someone born in Armadale to say that they were born in Bathgate.

Have you viewed the marriage certificate of Catherine to William Ure in 1855? This should tell you whether or not Alexander's parents were deceased by then.

Catherine's marriage seems to indicate both parents are still alive but Alexander's lists them as deceased.

So you are looking in quite a short time frame, then.

I have searched the statutory death records to no avail, I have tried variants still to no avail.
