Buittle Kirkyard.....does anyone live near
« on: Sunday 02 July 17 14:44 BST (UK) »
Have found a MI courtesy of Matt on RC and wondered if anyone lived near and would be willing to go and look at the headstone to see if a wife is mentioned
Many thanks

Hi Karen,
Buittle Kirkyard and Cemetery (Stewartry M I's) are both recorded on the link below, they also include a photograph of the headstones. Hope this can help.

Have seen that hmcc but think there is more on the headstone than has been transcribed and I also can't read it

The photographs are dated 2001, it may be that the inscription is illegible in part. What headstone are you looking at Karen?

I will check Buittle MIs in the local library later this week, hope they might have some more info in the books. The headstone will be a lot harder to read now, compared to the photograph some 16years earlier.

No, Kirkcudbrightshire. Buittle is in Kbtshire too not Dumfriesshire. Will try library and hope it gives a little more info. Will get back to you either way.
