Lanarkshire / Re: lambhill cemetery in Glasgow
« on: Thursday 06 June 19 14:12 BST (UK)  »
Hi there,
I finally managed to visit Lambhill Cemetery today.  Unfortunately there is no headstone for the Blain lair No.925.  My wife and I checked other stones which had their numbers inscribed and narrowed it down. 

The attached phot is the area where the lair is located.  The small white marble plinth in the foreground is No 922, so the Blain lair would be between that stone and the tree.  Sorry the search came up blank.

Thanks to all for the responses and help.
I checked for a birth using year and mothers maiden name, but nothing found.   Eliza already had 6 children with the last being born in 1860, so I suppose its possible there were complications perhaps after a miscarriage but no trace of any resultant birth. 

Thanks again all.   All adds to my understanding of some of the issues effecting these generations.

You don't give a date but until 1874 entering the cause of death was not a legal requirement, but from 1874 a doctor's certificate was necessary before a death certificate could be issued. Between 1858 and 1874 the entry should indicate whether the cause had been 'certified' or 'not certified' by a medical practitioner.

Thanks Stan.  The death was 1863 so that makes sense .

Thank for the quick replies.  To be honest I did think it read "child bed", but could not make sense of that.   Just reading the link posted by Gadget.   What does the "not certified" mean in this context .

The attached is from a Cornish death certificate.   Does "Child led / Not Certified"   mean she died in childbirth and the child did not survive either ?   Sorry for what mean seem a basic question, but just trying to make sure I interpret things correctly.

Andrew, I think this was a standard entry where groom/bride was illegitimate. Mother's details would be recorded this way. In this case (always so helpful) the record of her marriage afterwards.

Monica

Yes, that was what I thought, but wanted to verify .   Thanks to all for their help

Was the bride born before Amelia’s marriage to Richard Stratton?

Yes she was.   Amelia's daughter was born in 1891 but is recorded as an illegitimate birth.   My research suggests Amelia brought up her daughter by her own means.

The attached snip is from a Scottish marriage registration in 1909.  It is the column for the brides father and mothers details.    I read it as ".... Amelia Carkeet formerly ????? ?????? afterwards married to Richard Stratton, Coalminer. Dec"      The ???? words look like "powerloom weaver" which would make sense, but why is her occupation appearing at all ?    It's usually only the males occupation, and the womans maiden surname.
