Page last updated on: Monday, 12 September, 2016.

We have access to old newspapers which contain birth, marriage and death announcements, plus some which were reported 50 years earlier. We also have copies of some original BMD certificates. Furthermore we have copies of a number of Church magazines which refer to baptisms weddings and funerals.

The nature of these sources mean that any list we provide cannot in any way be thought of as complete, but we will  include those that we have transcribed in the hope that someone might get lucky !

{the brackets} contain the source of the information : SRO usually implies that the source was an actual certificate, Mag. means the information came from a Church magazine, whilst KA means that the details came from the Kirkcudbrightshire Advertiser on the date specified - GN represents the Galloway News). If you see an RoH, this stands for Roll of Honour (during wartime).

Do be wary about dates in this list. Some sources provide death dates, some give funeral dates. We also include In Memorium records which might help where we don't have the newspaper which announced the death.  Remember to check out our separate page for obituaries.

If you are unsure how to search the data below, then check out "How to do Things on our Site" which is off our "Home Page".

It was with deep regret we learned of the death of Mr. D. Y. Veitch, in Lochmaben Hospital on Saturday, 6th February.     Mr Veitch was a life long member and supporter of our congregation.

Our deepest sympathy goes to Mrs Veitch and family. Also to his father, Mr T. Veitch, our senior elder and former Session Clerk.     [Mag.]
