This is an amazing resource for which, like many others, I am very grateful. Would it be possible to add sketch maps/plans of the graveyards to be able to identify the plots and their relationship to one another more easily please? Also is there any date or information for the previous recording of gravestones in Kincardine churchyard to know when they were covered or became illegible. There are several interrelated Stewarts/Stuarts, Smiths and Grants et al here whose inscriptions are no longer legible apparently. Tantalizing but nevertheless very good to have even this much information. Thanks for this amazing archive. If it has been done by one person alone it is truly monumental!


I had a go at mapping the graveyards as I went but found this was not my talent so gave that up. Which Kincadine are you looking at (There are a couple). And yes I am one person :)

There's a listing, in blue, for a Simon Fraser, died 1886, in the Drumtemple Cemetery. When I clicked on it it took me to a picture. Is there a record on any stone inscription that may be available?

Thanks.

I'd appreciate a photo of my 4th great grandparents, if possible. They are Peter Robertson and Janet McGregor, buried in Old Kilmorack churchyard. Peter died in 1842 aged 59. I see an entry for them but no stone #.

Thanks to anyone who can help --

Do you know Williams wife's name. The William Fraser d.1828 in Chapel Yard was married to Elizabeth McLeod. They have been added to the stone of Elizabeth's parents.I don't have a photo of that stone. If you knew his wife's name it would help in the search.

I have been searching for the gravestone of my ancestor William Fraser. He was born abt. 1787 perhaps in Urray and he died in Inverness abt. 1828. He was a weaver/crofter on the Muir of Tarradale (Redcastle) who was forced to move to Inverness with his family when Redcastle was cleared. He died of the flu around 1828-29
I recently found a gravestone on Find a Grave #181178966 for a William Fraser 1789-1828 in Chapel Yard Inverness. Would anyone have a photo of this stone or any other details? Also photos of the stones near his might help as several of his children died at the same time as he did.
