There are two of the above type of stones in St. Kentigerns ......

There is a wee row of CWGC stones which sit behind, and backing onto the screen wall in Section 5.

Two of these are 'Special Memorials' - stones which commemorate, but do not mark the actual graves.

J. Devlin, Royal Artillery is buried in Section 11. Grave 1558 and J. Higgins, Pioneer Corps although buried in Section 5, Lair 1903 this stone is not in that actual 'spot'.

You'll notice the slight difference in wording at the top - Joseph Devlin's says "Known to be buried in this Cemetery" while John Higgins' says "Buried in this Cemetery"

My Great Uncle, William White is also buried at St, Kentigens, so the information from previous postings have been very helpful.  William fell from, his ship, HMS Nereide in dry dock in Glasgow 30th June 1915. I am trying to gather information regarding the circumstances leading to his death. The cause of death is stated as. "killed or died by means other than disease, accident or enemy action" which sounds very confusing. if anyone visits the newspaper archives and find any info I would be most greatfull.  Also my great Aunt Honorah White, who was a Nun ( known as Sister Anthony, died at Poor claires convent laswade rd, Liberton, Edinburgh. However the convent I believe has beeen converted into housing. I wondered if anyone knows whwere the nuns are buried. she died Jan 1959

many thanks

Hi kieran357, I came across your post while doing some family research. My family is Gallagher from Donegal, my auntie is also Gallagher and I am trying to find her brothers grave who she believes was buried in St. kentigerns circa 1950. Any help would be much appreciated, I believe that the Mitchel has recordd of burials for this place at this era. Thamks in advance, Walter.

Hi Walter,

Thanks for your reply.  From memory if you email the Mitchel library they will look up the death records for you.  What part of Donegal was your Gallaghers from as I have Gallaghers from Donegal in my tree.

Thanks for all your help

Kieran

Hi Kieran, my family and the Gallaghers I was looking for are from the Creeslough area. I am just back from the Mitchel, I found him all I have to do now is locate the lair from the No., I don't think it was marked at the time. WW

Hi Gerry,

As you'll know, Section 13 is in 2 parts, one either side of the main road and quite a big area to cover ......

A wee tip I use is to visit the Commonwealth War Graves site and see if I can find any 1st/2nd World War graves as near as I can to what I'm looking for in a particular section.

See: http://www.cwgc.org/search-for-war-dead.aspx?cpage=1&sort=name&order=asc

The above link should take you to the first page for St. Kentigerns and once you get there, go through all the pages and note down all the names and lair numbers for each grave in Section 13. You'll eventually be able to figure out how the numbers run, but it won't be a five minute job once you get there!!

Alternatively, if you can go along Monday-Friday, there's usually either groundsmen around somewhere or there's someone in the wee office beside the crematorium (at the Western Necropolis gate further up the hill). They're usually very helpful but they can be quite hard to find as they work between all 3 cemeteries and you know how huge the area is.

Good luck!

Anne
