Rosskeen Churchyard
« on: Tuesday 06 November 18 07:11 GMT (UK) »
Hoping for some help to point me in the right direction, I have ancestors whom are buried in Rosskeen Churchyard, is there anyway to find out there plot numbers and if there is a headstone etc?

Iím assuming Rosskeen was a a naval place after WW2 and thatís how they ended up there? Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

Thanks
Megan

The burial records for Rosskeen are in the care of Highland Council, possibly in Dingwall. See https://www.highland.gov.uk/info/640/birth_marriage_and_death/322/funerals_graves_and_cremations/2

The town of Invergordon is in the parish of Rosskeen. There was a naval base at Invergordon. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invergordon
