Thatís him, general dealer then pig dealer. Cheers Matt, 6 for the price of one.  I think a Dumfries visit is on the cards. Is there any maps online that show the layout of the cemetery?

Does anyone have access to the MIs for Dumfries cemeteries? I'm looking for the gravestone inscription (if he had one) for Thomas Mills, died 27 July 1895 in 18 St Michael St, Dumfries. Don't know what cemetery he would be in. Hoping it may have a note of his parent's names. No parents noted on his death certificate but a previous marriage certificate has them as James Mills and Elizabeth (Betty) Turnbull, although I'm getting hints that his name may be slightly different to his fathers. His dad could be a Mil or Miln or Milne. He was born in Ancrum, Roxburghshire anytime between 1825 and 1830 depending on what census you look at but I can't find a birth certificate for him. Hoping to find another piece of the puzzle.

Brilliant, many thanks. I looked up the exact spot the report describes and it turns out I used to work on that site, long after it was a shunting yard. Amazing how often my path has crossed with my ancestors.

Thanks folks. This NRS site confuses me, where do you search for records on it and whats available? Anytime I look at it all I find are indexes. Are there record available to view on there?

Looking to see if there's more information available regarding a death by being run over by a train in Glasgow in 1916. I've got the death certificate which says "registered on the information by procurator fiscal". Does the PF make reports public after a period of time? I can also only find 1 newspaper article relating to this, in the Scotsman no less. Cant find anything mentioned in any of the Glasgow papers.

Because the registrar for the marriage might have misunderstood the "young" as a surname, and used it as such, when it was meant more as a qualifier, along the lines of junior/senior?

Was the fellow in question literate, or was he a marksman (signed via a mark).

Never thought of that, everyone on the cert is x marks. Would have had to rely on someone else signing his name and no guarantee they would have done it correctly.Strangely enough, the registrar is also called Young.

Thanks Robbie, It could be but why would their middle names be on a marriage certificate and not their surnames. Cant get my head around it. I have 1881, 91, 01 and 11 censuses for him and they all say he's from Ireland so you'res isn't my man. The search continues.

I wonder if Young was his mothers surname.

Mothers name was Elizabeth Diffen according to JYD's death cert.
