Hi All,

Hello 'GerryFarrell'

I have just literally stumbled on your various posts re Dalbeth Cemetery. I spent last Friday and Saturday in the Mitchell Library pouring over the Burial Record Microfilm for St Peters And Dalbeth with limited success and then visiting the cemetery, only to find that there was no entry through the wall to Old Dalbeth and St Peters Cemetery only open on weekdays. Despair!

Then I found yourself and others on RootsChat.com.

I wonder if you could firstly clarify exactly how many cemeteries are actually there? I noticed The Good Shepherd stands between Old Dalbeth and St Peters and Dalbeth Cemeteries. Are they all listed somewhere?

Also I note that you have managed to transcribe the MI's and photograph the gravestones, and wonder whether you might share some of this information if I were to send you a PM?
Title: Re: Old Dalbeth M.I.
Post by: gerryfarrell on Tuesday 10 March 09 00:58 GMT (UK)
Hi frankin,

I have also despaired on several occations when looking through the microfilms of the burial records at The Mitchel as they are very hard to read.
On the subject of the Cemetery your right it is known under several names, The land which it is sited was known as Dalbeth estate and owned by the Hopkirk family until 1851 when it was sold to the Community of The Good Shepard who built Dalbeth Convant. The oldest and small part of the cemetery which is walled off was / is known as Old Dalbeth and the newer and much larger part is known as St Peter's. This causes quite a bit of confusion but they are all within the one area off London road.
Check out my previous link to see a pic -
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,324578.0.html
thankfully its looking better as the work continues.

The cemetery is still owned and run by the Catholic Church and although only stafed Mon - Fri it is open for access all weekend just drive in at the gate where you saw the sign for The Good Shepard and this will take you to a smll car park. If you look to the right when facing the main wall Old dalbeth is behind the wall at present there is no opening or gate in the wall for public access as its still under restoration however being a lanarkshire laddie I jumped the wall to get the photos of the remaining gravestones.
Feel free to message and ask for any stones which remain, Although it is only the Old Dalbeth section I have and not St Peters.

Gerry

Post by: Frankin on Tuesday 10 March 09 11:08 GMT (UK)
Hi Gerry,

Thank you for your reply, I think I have a better idea now about the cemetery names and locations. I think I will visit again soon to have another closer look.

Your other link with the pictures inside Old Dalbeth are an eyeopener!! What a state it must have been allowed to get into.

I,ve taken the opportunity to send you a PM with a short list of MI's I would like to look at more closely if that it is OK with yourself.

Thank you very much once again.

On your list of cemetery names I noticed numbers 31 and 32 were Donnelly.  Would you have any more information ie. first names.

Post by: Jewel of the North on Thursday 12 March 09 17:44 GMT (UK)
A question on this subject which I hope will not offend.  Was this a predominantly Catholic cemetery?  I am reseaching my family in this general area but they were for the most part so far as I know of the Protestant faith.  Would appreciate clarification.  Thank you.
Title: Re: Old Dalbeth M.I.
Post by: gerryfarrell on Thursday 12 March 09 18:27 GMT (UK)
Hi Jewel,

Both Old Dalbeth and St Peter's cemeties are owned and operated by the catholic church so I would reckon that the majotity of burials would be of the catholic faith however I wouldn't rule out that all are as I'm sure they wouldn't turn anyone away and there is no way of knowing what religion anyone is from their headstone unless a clergyman etc.
There is a large amount of graves of clergymen and nuns within these cemeteries but also a large area of unmarked graves belonging to people who were taken in at the former convant that passed away.
The microfishe of burial registers is held in the Mitchel library which would be the only way of confirming or dismissing.

Thanks for that info.  I am hoping to be  able to make another trip to Scotland before old Father Time catches up to me so will leave it at that for the present.  Really great work being done by Rootchat members in this regard.  I am sure it is much appreciated by all who use this forum.

Hi Richard

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

You need to have made at least 3 posts on the main forum before you can use the PM service to email other RCs. So just make a couple more and you will be able to access this service. Gerry will get notification of your post here and I'm sure will be in touch.

Monica - Thanks for that

I am interested in Gerry's information on Dalbeth as my Great, great, great grandparents are buried there, Lawrence and Bridget Conway.

I was in the Mitchell Library in December and managed to find the lair number etc. and I am hoping that Gerrys "Conway 22" are them.

I'm in Aberdeen these days (ex-Motherwell) and it's no always easy to get down the road.

Cheers

Hi Richard

Gerry's done such a phenomenal job on Old Dalbeth MIs, huge credit to him.

He doesn't look to have been on line since 24 May, the day before your post, which is why he hasn't responded so far. He will I am sure as soon as he logs back on  :)

All my crew are there (Old and New cemeteries), sadly no records found so far for them at Old Dalbeth  :'(

Hi Conway,

Sorry for taking so long in getting back to you on this, My heads been stuck in text books of a different kind for the last 6 weeks to get my final exams past. All done now and I can get back to this. I'll have a look at the Conway grave you mentioned once I get home and send you the details asap.

Hi Richard,

Sadly Conway 22 is the grave of a priest as follows -
Rev Daniel Conway, 12 July 1884. Aged 56

Gerry
Title: Re: Old Dalbeth M.I.
Post by: Conway13 on Wednesday 10 June 09 12:32 BST (UK)
Gerry - Thanks for your help anyway.

I checked up on Fr. Daniel Conway (worth a try !) but no relation.

I now suspect the lair that I am after is in the newer part of Dalbeth/St. Peters.
I've got a lair/section number but I am just waiting for a reply from the office.

Cheers

Gerry - Thanks for that !

I'll contact them today.

I heard early last year that all the Catholic cemetery records were away to be digitised and made available (some how ?). Maybe they are now in Edinburgh as part of this process. I'll post a note if I find anything out.

Thanks again

Cheers

Richard

Conway,

Your correct, the records are in the process of being digitised as well as a whole load of other records which touch wood should be available online as part of Scotlands People nearer the end of this year.

I am researching John O"Donnell aged 26 who was killed in the mine disaster at Blantyre mine in 1877.  You have his name on your list.  There was another John O"Donnell aged 23 and one site said they were from the same address but I think that was a mistake.
As I am just starting on this research and live in Perth Western Australia any info would be appreciated.

Post by: gerryfarrell on Wednesday 07 July 10 16:09 BST (UK)
HI Kenmure,

I would normally PM you the copy of the stone inscription but you need to post another couple of messages first before the site allows that..........
Here is the O Donnell stone inscription -
Erected by Mary Fullen in memory of her beloved husband John O Donnell, died 5th July 1876. Aged 40 years. And her two sons James, died 12th ???? 1880. Aged 5 years. Francis, died 26th Feb 1864. Aged ? Years. The above named Mary Fullen, died 26th Sept 1877.  Aged 44 years. er son John O Donnell, Died 15th July 1900. Aged 44 years.

If this does turn out to be your relations let me know and I will get a copy of the photograph to you

Gerry
Title: Re: Old Dalbeth M.I.
Post by: kenmure on Thursday 08 July 10 10:18 BST (UK)
Thanks for that gerryfarrell.  They don' t seem to be the right relations.
Our John O"Donnell died in a mine accident 22nd October 1877 aged 26 and was buried on 1st Nov. at Dalbeith (their spelling) cemetery.  There were 2 John O"Donnell's killed in the accident at the Blantyre mine along with over 200 men and boys. The other John was aged 23 years and not married. Our John was married to Ann Hunter who remarried and had 3 sons one of which was my grandfather.

Gerry this is brilliant, what a great project to do. Thankyou for doing it as I know I personally have rellies buried there.

I have not got them together yet but would you be able to see if a headstone for a Henry Quinn still stands please? He died October 11 1952 aged 81, but his wife Ellen O'brien died in 1944. Also buried with them I believe to be my gt uncle Henry McCartney, who died in Feb 1946.

Once I get my Quinn/McCartney/O'Brien line truly sorted out I'd love to see if any of my lot are here too.

Thanks again for this brilliant piece of work. We really are indebted to you.

Cheers,

Hi Reayboy.

The dates of your relations burials are too recent for them to be in he Old Dalbeth Cemetery which is the part that I'm concerned with.
Yours will be in the St Peter's part of the cemetery.

Guys, I reckoned this was the best place to put these, hope thats ok.  A lot of the images look pretty poor but I've tried to edit them to allow the inscriptions to be read. 

If anyone has a genuine interest in any of the images, I'll gladly send on a full-res/unwatermarked version of the image here and a full pic of the stone.

I have approx half of all of the stones still standing in images and will get to the others when time allows. 

best

Anthony

Title: Re: Old Dalbeth M.I.
Post by: gerryfarrell on Monday 18 October 10 16:02 BST (UK)
HI Camillo,

Sadly no plot plan for Old Dalbeth exists, which is a real pain and what got me started with all the photographs etc in the 1st place as I wanted to locate my GGfathers grave. We are trying to get a lair plan drawn together from the position of the remaining stones but it is a slow process.

What do you think the policy would be in relation to laying down a granite grave marker?

Would it be allowed or is it completely closed?

Post by: gerryfarrell on Monday 18 October 10 21:24 BST (UK)
Hi Camillo,

I honestly don't know, I wouldn't think they would object if the lair could be identified however I would advise you give Sharon a call at the Archdiocese of Glasgow's office and she would be able to tell you.

Hi Boltond,

Welcome to Rootschat. Going by the date of your relation he could be in either of the cemeteries, What I can tell you is that if he is in Old Dalbeth there is no headstone which has survived bearing his name.
The Burial records are now available on Scotland's People and it will tell you his lair number and which section of the cemetery he is in.

Hi Gerry

My husband's 2xgreat-grandparents are on one of the stones you listed. I would love to have a photo of the stone. They are John Kelly d1864 and Mary Kelly d1877. Maryann McElhinney d1890 is their daughter (my husband's great-grandaunt).

Two of my husband's other 2xgreat-grandparents are also buried there - Edward Quigley d1896 and his wife Catherine Quigley d1889. Are they by any chance the Quigleys mentioned in your list?

I would be very grateful for any help you can give me.

Sincerely

Maureen

Hi Maureen,

You don't know how lucky you are to have not one but two surviving headstones in Old Dalbeth.
I will send you a private message with my email address if you can mail me there I will let you have a copy of all the photo's I have of these stones and give you the lair numbers etc.

Hi Gerry,
I read your message with great interest, I am currently searching for the Cassidy side of my family who were all based in Hutchesontown or thereabouts in Glasgow 1n the later 1800's and beyond, I think many may have been buried there as I have heard many relatives both Cassidy and non-Cassidy mentioning family in that Cemetery. I'm overseas and cannot unfortunately visit often.So I wondered as per your offer for all the info you have on Cassidy's there. I would appreciate your help very much.

Peter McCue arrived Scotland early 1930s, no death registration available.
Susannah McCue, his wife, nee Morrison
Patrick McCue died 1886
Roseann McCue nee Hughes died 1913
Joseph McCue died 1948

Hi folks,

Thanks for a wonderful resource so far on this cemetery. My ggg-grandmother Alice Crawford (nee Connelly/Connel) was buried in Old Dalbeth on the 1st March, 1857. Definitely a Catholic, so it looks like she's somewhere under that much and rubble :(

As the thread's been running for a few years, I wondered if there was an update on either my relative (a headstone would be wonderful) or the state of the cemetery in general?

Many thanks in advance
Mark Crawford

Hi Mark,

Welcome to Rootschat. I've had a look through the inscriptions of the surviving stones and there are none containing a reference to Alice.
The cemetery is much nicer now, with all the ground cleared and grass growing again and being cut. At the moment it is still closed to the public, the West wall has been removed and rebuilt as part of the forth coming Commonwealth Games Development, I'm keeping a watchful eye on it as they had to remove quite a few headstones to do this ao we want to make sure they are reinstated properly.

Hi Naul,

No, it just means there is no headstone left in the cemetery which bears his surname.
If you contact the Scottish catholic Archives with his name and date of death they should be able to give you detais of his lair.

Hi Irishseeker,

I too, have many ancestors who are buried in common ground in Dalbeth in Glasgow - quite a common thing, when people just didn't have the money for living, never mind dying!!  Re SP - and your greatgrandmother's death in 1925 - are you sure there isn't a death entry available through SP?  There should be!  Do you want to mention name, - could have a look...

Hi Irishseeker,

I think you may have got the wrong burial record, The Mary Heaney listed in the St Peter's Burial book shows the date of burial as Jan 7th 1925, This matches a death record on SP for a Mary Heaney aged 66 died 5th Jany 1925 however that Mary was the widow of Robert and list her parents as Patrick & Ann Hobin nee Connelly.

Hi again Irishseeker,
Agree with Gerry - there is only one Mary Henney (variations) death between 1923 - 1926 ages 60 - 70, Scotland wide....the one in Glasgow with other name "Hobin" - ... so are you sure she died in Scotland?  Or could it  be that her name has been very badly transcribed... hhmmm.... thinking cap on....

Are you sure there is a headstone? If not your walking the cemetery may be in vain, If you find the lair number the Cemetery staff will be able to take you right to the plot.
The Mitchell Library in Glasgow has a copy of the burial books for St Peter's Cemetery.
I can't remember how late the films cover but it's worth enquiring.
Also you could try contacting the Scottish Catholic Archives in Drummond Street, Edinburgh who are also very helpful.

Firstly, what a great thread - and what a positive, helpful bunch of people! :)

I'm looking for information about an 18yo ancestor who is buried in Dalbeth (not St Peters) after a mining accident in Blantyre in 1896 and just need a bit of advice on where to look first for burial / plot information?

 I saw some references to the Catholic Archivists and also to possible digitizing of info in Rome and of some 'hard to read' microfiche in the Mitchell Library.  I live in Oxford, so would be doing this remotely.  Any advice / pointers would be greatfuly received.

I was also wondering if perhaps one of his sisters was a nun here - and where best to start that line of enquiry?

Hi BlantyreJoe

Have you tried checking the Roman Catholic Burial registers online on the pay to view site www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk His statutory death entry will also be there but will not normally include any burial info.

What was his name? Maybe people can add some info with this.

Monica  :)
Title: Re: Old Dalbeth M.I.
Post by: BlantyreJoe on Friday 15 February 13 20:18 GMT (UK)
Thanks Monica! I already have his death record and the RCE from SP. It is the RCE that gives Dalbeth Cemetery as burial location. But doh! I hadn't looked in the Catholic registers (had been assuming he was Ulster Protestant  :) - and was scratching my head as to why Dalbeth, thinking that maybe his sister had converted! )

His name is Joseph Robison - and that is what is on his birth record and death record - although SP have it indexed as Robinson and the Scottish Mining website has his death recorded as Robertson. 
He was killed at Auchinraith No.2 Pit on 23rd March 1896, Blantyre.

I have now found his burial record, in Common Ground (10shillings and sixpence), at Dalbeth, under the name of Robertson (18, Mining accident). I am assuming that this will be the common ground shown in some of the Dalbeth photos in these threads and not in the Old Cemetery behind the walls?

I can find variations of Robison/Robinson for his parents and siblings and his sister married my GrGrGrandfather, J Pinnell.

Thanks so much for the pointer.  :)

I was delighted to find some info on the Dalbeth cemetery.  I have at least 3 ancestors buried at St. Peters Dalbeth cemetery, but I don't know if they are in the old part or the new.  One I know is in the old part, but I didn't see her in your list. 
Ann Lennon -75 yrs- 23 Oct 1901  Old Dalbeth
John Lennon -67 yrs- 16 Oct 1892  St Peter's Dalbeth
Mary Ann Miller -67yrs- 1 Dec 1924  St Peter's Dalbeth
The first 2 are husband and wife, the 3rd was their daughter.  I found the actual record on ScotlandsPeople.  I have been looking for photos of headstones.  I live in the US so I am not able to visit myself.  Can you help?

Hi Gerry, I have a couple of  questions for you concerning the Old Dalbeth cemetery in which you have done a tremendous amount of work. I have been to the Archdiocese of Glasgow but, the poor lady that works there has so much stuff to do I don't wish to keep pestering her and ScotlandsPeople Catholic records give very little info outside of name and date. What I'm wondering is two fold; Is there anywhere where you can find a layout of the Old Dalbeth cemetery and who is buried in it and where(those whose headstones no longer exist and those who may have never had them), including if there is a common ground area? Also, is there any place where you can get more information about people buried in Old Dalbeth,like you would get on a regular death cert that would identify them more? I have several people that are buried in the Old Dalbeth whom I know are mine but, a few I'm not sure about and the Catholic listing only doesn't help and as they are in the Catholic listing they do not appear to have been required to have a regular death cert. Any help at all would be much appreciated. Kim

Hi Kim,
The Mitchell Library has the burial and lair books for Old Dalbeth on microfilm, they have also been digitised by the Catholic archives in Edinburgh.
The burial records only give limited information Name, age, cause of death, lair no and cost of burial. The very early books have even less information.
Sadly there is no plan for Dalbeth to show its layout, however I have a rough self made one from tracing the lair numbers of the surviving headstone that I transcribed. The common ground was the area at the front nearest the main road.
Remember that after 1855 all deaths required to be registered and a certificate issued regardless of religion.
If you need anymore detailed info or photos of any headstones send me a pm.

Gerry

Gerry, thankyou so very much for that. I am returning to the Mitchell on Monday and try that. The only thing is one of the two that I'm most interested in died in 1856 and there is no corresponding death cert for her to be had just the info in the Catholic records. Thanks again, Kim

Hi Gerry , It seems you are the " Go To Expert " on Old Dalbeth Cemetery ... My Great grandfather Daniel McCormick died age 62 in 1941 was  buried in that cemetery , and I believe his father  Daniel McCormicks died age 78 in 1931 may be buried there also .... I wonder if any stone matching them has been photographed ...or any way of locating the graves is possible  ? Hope you can help ... Cheers  Steve McCormick

Hello Gerry
Thank you for collecting and collating all the info and photos on Dalbeth.   If you are still available to assist, I am looking for a Bridget O'Neill buried in Section 11, Division E, Lair 262.  Date of death was 7 May 1952.  I tried a search online but didn't come up with anything from FinadaGrave.
Many thanks.

Hi Gerry,

Can you please send me the information you have for Murphy's buried at St Peter's cemetery.

Also I have confirmation from a distant relative that Biago Rinaldi had a private lair. Where can I find more information or photos.

Is there a MI for Lair 79.  My relatives, Peter Connell, a still born was the first to be buried there in 1871.  Followed in 1873 by another still born also called Peter Connell.  The father Peter Connell is buried in 1887.

Then my Grans brother William Gilmour is buried there in 1892 only a few months old.  Then my Gran's grandmother, Helen Connell (nee Bonar) is buried 1906.  Connell was her 2nd married name.

And finally my Grans aunt Margaret Craig Gilmour is buried in 1938 there. 

Many thanks and sorry if I may have asked this before.  I cannot recall now, but I've just stumbled across the 1938 burial due to the free Roman Catholic registers on FindMyPast this weekend.

Does anyone know if Old Dalbeth Cemetery is accessible to the public? I saw on earlier posts that it was closed for "restoration" about eight years ago, but haven't seen an update regarding reopening. We will be in Glasgow in a few days' time and I'm wondering if it's worth a visit.

I just want to thank Gerry for doing this work, and hopefully you're still replying to PMs as I've just located Ann Dougan in Dalbeth (34, I think) and will be contacting you shortly.

Just saw your post about Dalbeth Cemetery in Glasgow.  If you have any info on Patrick Sweeney (1892), Hugh Sweeney (1863), or Catherine McCulloch Sweeney (1895) it would be most appreciated.
