Need help with Neil death record
« on: Saturday 01 August 20 02:51 BST (UK) »
Hey guys, this is what I believe is my 4x great gfathers death record. His name is David Neill and I believe his wifes name is shown as Mary McAuley. His fathers name was Samuel, and I think this matches the certificate, but I need some second opinions. Also I can't quite make out his mother's name. Any help with these three names on the certificate would be great. Thanks!

Good morning, neillers1, and welcome to Rootschat.
I agree with your reading of the names on the certificate.  Re his motherís maiden surname , and his wifeís maiden surname, I think the spelling is Macaulay - the second-last letter an  a  and not an  e .    His motherís first name is Anne. The e at the end is quite flat, similar to several other e on the certificate.   
One thing I canít make out though is Place of Death! You maybe knew that already so didnít have to try to decipher it from the certificate! Is it Egh- - - - lied ?

For the names, I agree with ShaunJ above.

The address is Eglinton Street, Irvine.
