Aberdeenshire Lookup Requests / Re: Inverurie / Huntly Memorial Inscription ?
« on: Tuesday 20 July 21 22:23 BST (UK)  »
Hi Swally

I can only see one James Allan in Inverurie in 1851 and 1861. He is showing as born c. 1805 in Peterhead. From 1861:

James Allan 56  carter b. Peterhead
Jane Allan 56 b. Udny, Aberdeenshire
John Allan 12
Robert Allan 9
Helen Allan 2
John Gellan 36 Lodger
John Christer 42 Lodger

Address: High Street Inverurie

Jane Aitken/Allan looks to likely be widowed by 1871.

James Allan's death is showing in 1869 in Inverurie. Age indexed as 58. Mother's maiden name Simpson.

The death notice for James Frazer Allan states he died in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary on Sat. Feb. 27, 1988, aged 65. The funeral was private. Perhaps the Registrar in Aberdeen might help. I tried to attach but couldn’t make it work.

Is the clip below the one you found? Is there another one with mention of cemetery?

Patrick had died by 1891? Bridget showing as a widow on her entry that year...and born in Galway isn't she.

I think the family of Frazer Allen were as follows:

Parents:

James Allen
Eleanor Fraser Morgan

Mother Eleanor Fraser Morgan or Allen died in Fraserburgh in 1970 at the age of 82.

Father James showing on the 1940 VRs at 35 Fonthill Terrace, Aberdeen. This is the address given for Frazer in newspaper reports in 1941.

Electoral Rolls for 1952 at that address show:

James Allen
Eleanor Allen
James F Allen
Dorothy O Allen

Sister's death:

DOROTHY OLIVIA ALLEN or DICK (married John Dick in 1961)
Age 95
Mother's maiden name MORGAN
2015
311/ 39
Fraserburgh

Can't see a Scottish birth for sister or mother...so, your Irish refs may be correct.

Frazer Allen's daughter died the year before he did, in 1987. Below is her death notice. At a guess, could these have been the same arrangements for Frazer Allen the following year?

You will have this already Alan, but just adding as background to your thread...

Just been reading about the war time activities of both Alfred Carson and Frazer Allan which resulted in both being awarded the George Medal (Aberdeen Evening Express - Tuesday 23 February 1965).

Alfred Carson in earlier years was also recognised for his bravery following his attempts to save a drowing man in the Albert Basin, Aberdeen.

Amazing men  :)

In case it helps further in finding burial details, Alfred Carson's death at the age of 75 in 1965 shows him with the middle name of Morrison.

That might connect with this birth entry, making him maybe a little older:

Alfred Morrison Carson
1889
168/1 1674
St Nicholas

His wife, Sheena Hay Grassick died on 4th November 2020, aged 91. The funeral was private, at her own request, so no details in the paper giving any location or whether a burial or cremation.
