John Wallace, as far as we can see, by mention of date, names and position, John was Buried at Newington, Edinburgh in September 1949. Newington would lie between where Leith [where John was working] and the Place in the Borders were he killed  in a tree accident. Now, after a long search, you know where he is Moyra. There may be no Grave, but there is a big Cemetery.

Hi,
Well done on getting this far!
A couple of questions....how do you know he is buried here and why does he have no grave?
Oh, a third one......does his daughter now have this info?!

Thatís nice to have found it out for the family.

This was a thank you some time after the funeral. [Scotsman 10 September 1949]. Newington says there is no stone. On the other hand, I have found stones which Mortonhall said  did not exist. I have found the house where Moyra's Father was born, lived and moved, and now his final resting place. She knows the name of the other sister [who attended /deseathed] and always wondered why she was not asked to attend. As the couple were separated with one in Leith and another in ,Denholm, Newington was an ideal meeting spot for a funeral. Maybe the Forestry Commission should raise one. Moyra knows about this.
