Hello Moira, :D

I did free Death searching for your Donald Sutherland born 1888.
there were 7 deaths in Scotland between 1888 and 1955.being born only the year 1888................
Of these, there is one died 1888 Wick......
1943 and 1944 Wick......the other 4 deaths were other places....
& deaths breakdown was....
3deaths between 1888-1890
1death between  1910-1920
3deaths between 1940-1955.

I also looked for the death of the mother Mary Sutherland / Mackenzie (soundex) from 1888 to 1955, with a number  of hits....

regards, jo

PS....Do you have Donald in the census?  1891 &1901C?

Moira,

You can do free searches yourself.

In order to be able to carry out free searches you need to register with ScotlandsPeople - but this too is free.

Of course to view the actual results you will need to purchase credits (six pounds for 30 credits) but, by refining the parameters on the free search, you can extract quite a bit of information without having to pay.
