There are some other Burgess and Hendry burials in here.
I'll have a better look tomorrow and post what I find.

Holytown Cemetery is an extension of the Churchyard Cemetery. It is not on the 1898 map, but is on the 1912 map.
The Churchyard Cenetery is on the 1859 map.
I have been in the Churchyard and the Cemetery looking for gravestones quite a few times.
Holytown Crematorium opened in 2004.

I do have a map of the Old Church Yard which shows the location of the plot but it's too big to upload here.
If you send me your email address by pm I'll send you a copy.

Honeybank Row gets a couple of mentions here  http://www.carlukehistory.co.uk/index.php .
Put Honeybank in the Google search box.

According to Anc* there were 87 people in Honeybank Road, Carluke in 1901. 18 of them are showing as head of the house.
I've had a look at the original and it looks like Honeybank Road to me. I've attached a snippet.
I can't find Honeybank Road in 1881 or 1891.
