Stenhouse burials in Aberdour, Fife
« on: Monday 08 November 10 20:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi all
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I'm looking for burial records for both Aberdour Cemetery and St Fillans Church in order to track down the graves of the following people:

David Stenhouse died 6th April 1888 aged 79
William Coventry Stenhouse died 4th June 1888 aged 3 months
Andrew Stenhouse died 4th December 1891 aged 77
Elizabeth Ross Stenhouse died 11th April 1895 aged 79
Andrew Stenhouse died 15th February 1913 aged 60

All were residents of Aberdour.

I've spoken to the Burials Superintendent (Dunfermline), Fife Council and New Register House (Edinburgh) who were all sympathetic, but unfortunately couldn't help.
It would appear that the Burials Superintendent's records only start in 1930.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi I went to Aberdour last summer searching for graves and found a lovely man in the post office who kept a book with a list of burials in Aberdour of both cemetries. You can go in and he sat me in the corner to read the book. It took ages as every time some one came in they wanted a chat it was great and I did find out lots of information.
Good luck
Lynnc

Hi Lynnc
Thanks so much your reply, and a very useful tip.
I'm hoping to go up to Aberdour in the summer, maybe to coincide with their festival, and I'll be paying a visit to the PO.
