Re: Help please

Hi Ailsa, Once more, playing a game of probability with the ScotlandsPeople index, I searched for the death of a James Wright between 1911 and 1939, with a birth year of 1864 ± 2 years in a registration district within the City of Glasgow gives the following 9 results. JAMES WRIGHT, 49 1912, 654/ 35...

Re: Help please

A look at the ScotlandsPeople index shows an Adam Wright marrying an Agnes Ellis in 1866 in Dundee. The death of an Agnes Wright, other surname Ellis, shows up in 1915 in Kelvin as Agnes Miller Wright, aged 77 years. It may be that she used her maiden surname as a second middle name. All the best, A...

Re: Old Calton Burial ground in Edinburgh

Hi Donna, The records held at Mortonhall Crematorium are "lair records" - records of the burial plots and who is buried in each plot. According to the Council website, the records held for Old Calton Cemetery date back to 1857. Old Calton Cemetery is significantly older than that. Wikipedia advises ...

Re: Must the name on death cert be same as birth cert?

Hi Ailsa, There is no requirement for the birth certificate to be presented as part of death registration. Information on a death certificate is only as good as the person informing the registrar offers. Generally it is good, but a death certificate is the one most likely to give misinformation. It ...

Re: Inglis Glen, Colinton

Hi Barbara, I had a quick peek at the 1905 Valuation Roll, and there is your man Frederick Harrison, in a lodge to Inglis Green House. It seems that the house and lodge owners, the Stevensons were the proprietors of A & J MacNab the Launderers and Dyers across the road from the house. See (near the ...

Re: Inglis Glen, Colinton

Hi Barbara, It is more likely to be Inglis Green. Is that a possibility from the document that you have with that on it? Inglis Green was between Slateford and Longstone villages, on the northern edge of Colinton Parish, nowadays (since 1920) within the City of Edinburgh. See: http://maps.nls.uk/geo...

Re: Help please

Hi Ailsa, See this map from 1895 . https://maps.nls.uk/view/74417037 Almost in the centre of this map is Hutchesontown UP Church. It is on the odd-numbered side of the street, with the numbers starting from the town-centre end (the north-west of this map). So the increasing odd numbers are on the no...
