Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home town is Glasgow, Scotland.

My interest began when I started walking my dog in Cathcart cemetery with my father, who was photographing Scottish war graves (if interested you can visit the project at - http://scottishwargraves.phpbbweb.com/index.php?mforum=scottishwargraves)
I appreciate graves as pieces of social history (I'm a history graduate) and finding interesting people and stories which have often been long forgotten.

I'm happy to take requests for photos and I will certainly do my best to photograph them for you when I can.

Please note though that Cathcart is huge, ill-maintained and several sections are pretty overgrown. If you have a section and lair number I shouldn't have too many problems finding the lair even if there's no stone or it's lying flat or buried. I can still keep an eye out for you if you have neither and I can check the photographs we already have on the hard drive.

Mark Sheridan
Thank you for posting the photograph of Mark Sheridan's final resting place.

If my research is correct, he was my great grandmother's uncle... Born Frederick Shaw in 1864 in Durham County, England. I will post edited information once I have verified more facts.

Best wishes,

Yes please, that would be fantastic. Could you send them to my email s0therl0nd@blueyonder.co.uk (the '0' are zeros).
I didn't know that my husbands side were there until more recently and I could have kicked myself as I was looking at my side, who are McHarg and Caughie.
It is so much appreciated and I look forward to receiving the photos.
Feel free to put the photos on Findagrave but I would like them personally so I can have them printed.
Thank you again.
