Headstone lookup Dundee Eastern Cemetery
« on: Thursday 09 April 20 11:25 BST (UK) »
Hello,

does anyone know if there are headstone inscription records for the Dundee Eastern Cemetery

I am trying to find the headstone of Christina Fernie MS Laidlaw died 4th December 1896

From Dundee City Council records Christina Laidlaw was buried in the Eastern Cemetery Section AA lair no 126

I have visited the cemetery but have been unable to find a headstone in the correct area, several have fallen over or seem to be missing completely, and of course perhaps she never had a headstone in the first place.

Is there a map showing position of actual Lair numbers, and / or any record of headstone inscriptions

this has been a long term brickwall for further background see the following post

thanks in advance for any help

Probably best, I suggest, to contact Dundee Council and aks them for guidance on where the grave is located in section AA. You already have all the details and just need specific location advice with the possibility of no gravestone or marker to work from.

Hello.. The liar number's are usually on the side of the head stone if one is there... so if you can find one with a number close to 126 then you can extrapolate the position.. The Park's department did used to offer to meet you if you phoned them to pinpoint the position for you so might be worth a call to see if they would do this also... social distanced of course...
