Alloa Cemetery [closed for wall repairs] Look ups
« on: Sunday 03 June 12 23:08 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know where I can get  list of cemetery MIs for this cemetery. My Rodgers, Henderson and maybe Drysdale and Anderson families should be buried there

I was coming from New Zealand to visit EARLY NEXT MONTH ONLY TO SEE ON THE COUNCIL WEBSITE ITS CLOSED THE CEMETERY TO DO BOUNDARY WALL REPAIRS

Try contacting http://www.memento-mori.co.uk/

I know they have most MI's for Stirlingshire and I'm pretty sure they have info on Alloa in Clacks.

Sure, I saw that online.† However, I believe they might have the records off line that they can check for you.†
You should drop them a quick email.† I've had many dealings with them.

I should have added, I think they only put records online of those stones for which they have photographs.  They will have other MIs where they haven't photographed the stones yet.

Hi, JuliaP,

I failed to notice this message before sending my previous post.  There are quite a few Hendersons, Drysdales and Andersons buried in Greenside Cemetery.  There is one Roger but no Rodgers.

Unfortunately none of these names appear on the MIís for Greenside Cemetery or the adjacent Old Kirkyard, but  there are quite a few unlisted headstones due, no doubt, to being indecipherable.

It's been a long time since the last interment in Greenside and even longer in the Old Kirkyard.

Incidentally, I passed Sunnyside Cemetery today and itís open.

maddymoss, if you have some time, could you possibly check to see whether there are any Forrests in the MIs there.
I have a lot in Stirlingshire but not too much of a stretch for some of them to have migrated to, or from Alloa and surrounds.

Thanks.

Dave
