Good news, and another great find by Sancti. That's the great thing about here its the assistance given by those of us who hate to be beat.

Hi Irishseeker,

I think you may have got the wrong burial record, The Mary Heaney listed in the St Peter's Burial book shows the date of burial as Jan 7th 1925, This matches a death record on SP for a Mary Heaney aged 66 died 5th Jany 1925 however that Mary was the widow of Robert and list her parents as Patrick & Ann Hobin nee Connelly.

Sadly There is no memorial that I'm aware of for the many thousands of paupers etc buried in the common ground of St Peter's or Dalbeth Cemeteries.

Hi Peter,
The entry for Hallinan is indeed for Rev William Hallinan. If you PM me your email address I will send you the photographs I have relating to that entry.

Hi Naul,

No, it just means there is no headstone left in the cemetery which bears his surname.
If you contact the Scottish catholic Archives with his name and date of death they should be able to give you detais of his lair.

Scotland / Petition to keep the Scottish Catholic Archives in Edinburgh
« on: Monday 23 July 12 10:36 BST (UK)  »
HI All,
Currently the Catholic Records for Scotland are housed in Drummond Street Edinburgh with the Archivists looking after them and free public access to anyone. They are under threat of being dispersed to the various diocese, which is a major threat to both the public access and the upkeep. 

You can help keep them in Edinburgh by signing the online petition -
