Dear Annette
I wonder if you are right! I have a copy (not a facsimile) of the death certificate for the District of St Rollax in the County of Lanark which says that he died in the Poorhouse. It refers to him as 'pauper' but if there is no indication that he applied as such, is there, I wonder, a list of working doctors there? I wonder if the certificate proper will differ from the transcription? I will try to get one.
Thank you very much for your help

Hello Jantyb1 and [TS_welcome]

Jim hasn't been on the forum since September 2010, but let's hope he has kept the same email address and will get a notification of your post!

Best wishes,
