Are Greenside and Sunnyside the same cemetery?
« on: Monday 04 June 12 00:41 BST (UK) »
Who would have lists of the names buried there? One , Sunnyside appears to be closed?

Thanks so much

Hi Julia,
Just noticed this query.
As mentioned in your other query, regarding Alloa, memento-mori might be able to assist and if not, will almost certainly be able to point you in the correct direction.

No, they are not the same.  See http://www.clacksweb.org.uk/community/cemeteries/ for location maps.
Sunnyside Cemetery is the main one these days, it is on Sunnyside Road, up a hill going north out of Alloa.
Greenside Cemetery is nearer the centre of town, on Greenside Place (or Street?).  Alloa has an old kirkyard adjacent to a cemetery, you need to ask for keys for this.

Yes, I've also found Clacks Council very helpful.  If it is just one or two you would like me to look up, please send me a PM.

Hi, JuliaP. 

I have the booklet of pre 1855 MI inscriptions for Clackmannanshire, including Greenside Cemetery.  Send a PM and I'll check the name/s.  Incidentally, some of burials date from the 1930's.

Cheers.
