Many thanks for looking Norrie,

unfortunately I haven't come across the names you found, as yet....  I guess they couldn't afford gravestones.

Hi Norrie,

Many thanks for your offer, I wonder if you can check your collection for an Andrew Dryburgh and wife Agnes Wilson.

Thank you

William Davidson (d 1979) and Isabella Anderson Pake Davidson (d 1983) in Kirkcaldy.

Thank you for your generous offer and Season's greetings to you.

Hi Susan  Nothing on these familes

The Cemeteries I listed Abbotshall,Bennochy & Pathhead
Are older Cemeteries and burials there are most likely to be for
Persons who have have ground their, passed down from their ancestors.

Dysart Cemetery is still being used at present for new burials

In the 40s a new cemetery was opened in Kirkcaldy called Hayfield
Cemetery That is most likely where they would have been buried
Or they could have been cremated at Kirkcaldy Crematorium
Which opened in 1959
   The current lair registers (dating from 1939) are administered by Fife Council, Kirkcaldy Crematorium, Dunnikier Park, Dunnikier Way, Kirkcaldy, KY1 3PL. Tel. 01592 260277. Fax 01592 203438.

Thank you so very much for the information.  I really appreciate your taking the time to explain that to me....I'm in Canada so don't know much about cemeteries, councils, etc. in the UK but I'm learning thanks to all the wonderful Rootschatters.

Hi Norrie,

Thank you for checking, I just know that they were buried somewhere in Kirkaldy, and the year for Agnes was about 1909, not sure about Andrew. The did live in Kirkaldy, but it is just family chat that they have a stone, so it might not be.

Thanks again
