Lanarkshire / Re: How to find my brother's grave?

Hi Kathleen

Do you live in Glasgow? If so can you get to the Mitchell Library? They have micro-fiche on old graves and they will show you how to look through the records. If you know the cemetery
and roughly the month then it shouldn't take too long. There is no cost for this and no need to make an appointment. Good Luck.

Hi Isleyhawk,

I went up to the Mitchell after work today and good news, I managed to locate your grandparents. As my gran is in St Kentigerns Cemetery I started with that and there they both were!

Arthur Hart - Buried 1st Dec 1947 Age 79. Place of Death - 74 Chancellor St.
Reg No - 24789. Lair No 965.  Section 13. Class C.

Margaret Harte (this is how it is spelt in the extract) -Buried 25th Oct 1949 Age 79.  Place of Death - St Jos Home.  Reg No - 24789. Lair No 965. Section 13. Class C.

As you can see the burial records are identical I haven't just mistyped.

Hope this helps.

Thats great, having the exact dates make it much easier even if we don't know the graveyard. I will let you know what I find. :D

Hi Islayhawk

I should be going to the Mitchell next weekend so if you could give me the dates of your grandparents death I could try and look for you.

My Gran stayed around the same area and died in 1948, she was also catholic, she is buried in St Kentigerns cemetery in Lambhill.  I knew her date of death but not the cemetery but the gentleman at the Mitchell Library suggested St Kentigerns and after looking at the microfilm for 10 mins I managed to locate her grave.  I am going to try and find it next week so fingers crossed.
