Headstone Transcriptions of Other Kirk/Church Yards
Transcriptions of churchyards and kirkyards around Coldstream, over and above those listed for Lennel and Cornhill. Most of the transcriptions were carried out by David Cargill and helpers in the 1970s and therefore these have been a great help because some of the headstones are deteriorating or have fallen.
We have transcribed, or are transcribing, into this website, and accompanying photos, headstones in the following church or kirkyards, including memorials to people within churches/kirks. These are:- West Learmouth, Branxton, Carham, Birgham, Eccles, Leitholm, Anton’s Hill, Swinton, Kirknewton, Ford, Simprim and Norham.
Some of these are complete, others are being covered and some are still to do. See the comments on each one. Memorial plaques within churches and kirks are included and we are listing the ones in Coldstream Parish Church as well.
You will also find images of stained glass windows, donated pulpits and other key things. Please also see our Lennel and Cornhill transcriptions which, because of their size, have had to be displayed in a more regimented way – sections, rows and headstone number. The other churchyards are generally arranged in a simpler fashion.
ALL TRANSCRIPTIONS MIRROR THE SPELLING ON THE HEADSTONES SO YOU MAY COME ACROSS ANOMALOUS SPELLING.
