Galashiels MI/ Burial index
« on: Monday 28 July 08 10:05 BST (UK) »
Can anyone please point me in the direction of where I could find/purchase details of Galashiels memorial inscriptions?

I see the Broders FHS has published inscriptions up to 1855.

Unfortunately I am more interested in the more recent past as I have several generations dying between 1903 and 1945. (All Dicksons; two Georges, two Helens, a John and a Jane)

Any help is appreciated.

Kind Regards

Tracey

I, too, would appreciate knowing where to inquire about burials for my folks from Galashiels and some of the other Border towns.

Thanks,
