Hi and welcome.
Re Robert Henderson 1862-1938,  there is a burial record for Holywood Churchyard. It shows a burial on 6 Jan 1938 in respect of Robert Henderson aged 75 years. His occupation is a blacksmith & his place of death was East Cluden. The burial is in Section E. Lair No 12. No other person shown.

Also  Margaret Stevenson his wife,who died at East Cluden 18th August 1894 aged 62 years.

Oh good find. That entry is not in the book of MI's.
Have just checked the "Death & Interment Register" for Canonbie Parish which is on Ancestry.
Entry No 16 gives Walters date of death as 28th Aug 1897 aged 80 years & his burial 31st Aug 1897.


I can find no reference to Walter in the MI's for Canobie at the moment. (Have misplaced my reading
glasses at the moment)

Hi, just for info, re message # 3.

In the MI's for Canonbie church graveyard there is an entry that
relates to Margaret Telford spouse of James Clapperton who died at Ladyhousestead 7th April1867
aged 72 years. Also James Clapperton who died 19th May1873 aged 79 years.
