My great-grandfather, Samuel Lindsay Stevenson (1854-1933) buried in Sandymount cemetery in Glasgow. I would like to contact the cemetery to find out if there was an obituary or other information about him. 1901 census puts his home as 76 Dalmarnoch Rd., Glasgow. I would like to know his parents and exactly where he was born. All I have is County Down in Ireland, abt 1854. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I live in NY, USA.

If you have a look on  Scotlandspeople.gov.uk and search you will find the death record. There is a charge of 1.50 for each download and Scottish records show parents names which is a good help.

Thank you for your quick response. I will follow up on that. I guess I'll have to visit the cemetery next time I'm in Glasgow.

Hi Steven

Have a few spare credits to help you out.

Samuel Stevenson was a Engineers Timekeeper- widower of Janet Killens.

The parents names were William Stevenson - sewing machine work labourer and Eliza Stevenson - maiden surname Lindsay.  Informant was his son R K Stevenson 15 Cleveland Street Glasgow. (present)  Will attach certificate for you shortly.

The son would be Robert Killens Stevenson.

Can I contact Sandymount cemetery by email?
This cemetery comes under the City of Glasgow Council. Their web site says, "All genealogical enquiries can be dealt with through the Archive Section at the Mitchell Library, they can be contacted on 0141 287 2910 or at archives@glasgowlife.org.uk".

You won't get a lot of extra information about Samuel Stevenson himself from the burial record other than the date of burial as you already have the death certificate that *Sandra* has bought for you. However there may be information about other people buried in the same lair.
