MI lookup Dumfries
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 14:25 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone have access to the MIs for Dumfries cemeteries? I'm looking for the gravestone inscription (if he had one) for Thomas Mills, died 27 July 1895 in 18 St Michael St, Dumfries. Don't know what cemetery he would be in. Hoping it may have a note of his parent's names. No parents noted on his death certificate but a previous marriage certificate has them as James Mills and Elizabeth (Betty) Turnbull, although I'm getting hints that his name may be slightly different to his fathers. His dad could be a Mil or Miln or Milne. He was born in Ancrum, Roxburghshire anytime between 1825 and 1830 depending on what census you look at but I can't find a birth certificate for him. Hoping to find another piece of the puzzle.
Mills, Dallas, Stewart, McCulloch,

Thatís him, general dealer then pig dealer. Cheers Matt, 6 for the price of one.  I think a Dumfries visit is on the cards. Is there any maps online that show the layout of the cemetery?

Hi....I've got a printed map of st Michael's but it's mainly the Roman numeral sections. At the very bottom of my map there is a section L and section M. I can only assume that section N is further down, almost at the bottom gate...rather than the Craig's Road end.

Brilliant stuff all. Not sure where the bottom gate is Pete but I can see where Craigís road is so not in that direction Iíd guess. Iíll contact the council cemetery people and ask if they can narrow it down for me.

Thank you

Hi PeteRae,
Am interested in the map you have. Is it possible to purchase one or obtain a copy.
I was at the cemetery in late september but heavy rain stopped search. Am returning in
June (hoping rain will have stopped by then) to continue.
