I was amazed to find the headstone of Mene Smith photographed by you. A big thanks for your work, and especially for helping me find this elusive ancestor's resting place.

RE: Culross Abbey Churchyard
p.s. You do realize that Culross West Church is a ruin? It predates the Abbey Cemetery. (and of course the new Culross Cemetery) You can find photos online.

RE: Culross Abbey Churchyard
Hello again Peter
There was only one site for "Culross cemetery" when I first logged onto this site a few years back, so I began the Culross Abbey one.
My recent relatives are buried up in the new cemetery off the main road (no church, but a fence and wall and impressive entrance), but my earlier ones are in the oldest section right beside Culross Church.
Just to confuse matters more, a third person has since opened another "Culross Cemetery" site, and yes, I also noticed "Joanna" has listed dozens of photos as "registered at Culross Abbey and West Church". I did ask her where the photos were taken, but she was not sure.

p.s. I haven't investigated to the east of the church for years, but was unaware there are any burials post-1930s. I was told that my great-grandfather (postman in Culross till 1932) was the last one (just outside the church entrance, but if someone owns a lair and wants to be added, then who knows.

RE: Culross Abbey Photo
Hello Peter

Please forgive my typo.
The photo of Culross Church of Scotland shows the wall of the old Culross Abbey Cemetery on the left, that was closed in the 1930s. No fence as of last week.
If you look on the list of burials you will see most date from 1700s and 1800s.
Recent burials are in West Church or Culross Cemetery, off the 853, not beside Culross Church of Scotland and the Abbey ruins.

Culross Abbey Cemetery
Hello Peter
This phone is of a stone not in Culross Abbey Cemetery, which closed in 1932, but most likely of the new one up the road, sometimes called just Culross Cemetery or West cemetery.

RE: Malcolm McRae/MacRae
Thanks for that, Peter. I am in the process of adding the wargraves (and war-related graves) from the Outer Hebrides to this site.

I would like to add Malcolm back to the Eye cemetery listing, bearing in mind he is mentioned on a family gravestone - there are dozens of mentions like that on tombstones across the island of Lewis. However, adding Malcolm back would create a duplication in this site's records. Could you advise?
