Hi all.
Recently discovered my great grandmother is buried here so in the next couple of weeks, weather permitting, I am going to take a look for her grave.
If anyone else has ancestors that they know are buried there, give me the details and I'll have a look and take photos and MI.

Depending on the response I get, I MIGHT open my search for people that are only possibly buried there.

PLEASE DON'T WASTE TIME POSTING GUESSES FOR THE TIME BEING.  I will not respond.

Dave   

Hi Dave,

If it dries up anytime soon, any chance you could do my McLeods?

Hi Dave, you did such a fantastic job with my GWD and Eliza his wife. I can't remember if that 'dusty old ledger' gave any light on the 'Ramsays/Ramseys' though. If you are ever able to look at it again or can recall, they remain a mystery. (Incidentally, Sarah Thomson who married GSWD has turned up in Melbourne General Cemetery, Aus alone- died 14/04/1897)

Rena, I took a trip to the Ramshorn but failed to find the stone for Crum yet its in there somewhere, the cemetery has been considerably tarted up, the Council have planted ivy etc' which is covering some of the stones. Why don't you post here for Crum/The Ramshorn and see if somebody comes up with the transcription......Skoosh.

aw skoosh that's really nice of you to follow up.  I'm pleased to say that I've already got the information and photographs from the www.memento-mori.co.uk website.

I hope your kind act is returned to you many times - what goes around comes around eh?

Merry Christmas and a fruitful New Year  :)

Hello Readers
I have just picked up info on my 2x Grt Grandparents..
David Morland & Elizabeth Morland Nee Kinnon

Elizabeth Morland her interment of Sighthill Cemetery as follows:
 
Date: 14 April 1927
Name of deceased: Elizabeth Morland
Designation: Mother of James Morland
Address of deceased: 129 Hospital Street
Number: 4
Class: H
Years: 74
Date of death: 11 [April]
Date of funeral: Thursday 14 April
Hour: 3.15
Number of scrip: D966
Number of lair: 51
Class number: 7.
 
Confirm that it was purchased on 21 June 1886 by David Morland, Engineer of 18 Naburn Street. I can confirm that the following interments are listed:
 
Date                                      Description
 
15 Jul 1916                           1 adult [Alexander Buchanan, brother of Arthur Buchanan, 129 Hospital Street]
18 Oct 1918                         1 adult [William S. Dunlop, husband of Maggie Dunlop, 288 Cumberland Street]
14 April 1927                       1 adult [Elizabeth Morland]
24 April 1928                       1 adult [David Morland].

Is there a map for this Cemetery that can help?
Does anyone have access to further information and images of this Cemetery?

I am based in NZ and plan on being in Scotland in June this year.. It would be wonderful if anyone can offer some guidance as to the layout of the Cemetery in advance to arriving.. I plan on heading to this sacred ground

Many thanks for any further information

Regards
Scott Morland
