Find a grave has 116 Monumental Inscriptions but only see 3 Forsyth's and none of them yours ..The other thing is maybe they did not have a grave stone ..Maybe best checking Library if they have a list of grave lairs

Thank you for looking. The library don't have Lair records - I have tried before for other ancestors but most of the records don't start till 1872.

That's a pity you might need to try Edinburgh for old church records

About ten years ago, I tried to find lair records for one of my ancestors and had to go to the specific area office. I found out the appropriate one by phoning the D & G Council. They were all really helpful.

It might be worth phoning them to find out where the old lair books for Caerlaverock are.

The other problem is, I don't have a date when James FORSYTH died - just the year 1860.

Yes, I have phoned D&G  Council  before and, yes, they are very helpful- but the ones I was looking for at the time, their records didn't start till 1872.  The other problem is, I don't have a date when James FORSYTH died - just the year 1860.

I will give the council a call.

Many thanks
