Finally found my grandmother, grandfather, and their two sons in the Old
Coylton Cemetery. Thanks to Angela Thompson in Ayrshire who went over the
chronological listings in the registry for Coylton Cemetery, she located
their lairs with all of their proper names, dates and where they resided at
the time of their deaths.
I assumed all graves would have markings and so had been trying to find
monumental inscriptions - of which there were none - only the registry
records of interments and dates of purchase.
So this is what I received from Angela:
ISABELLA CUTHBERT DAVIDSON CARROLL bought a lair (J 68) on the 29th of June
1927; she resided at Seacko Farm, Westend, Darvel. There are no interments
indicated in this lair.
As well, the other lair, J 69 indicates 3 interments:
23.01.1923 JAMES CARROLL aged 5 years of Low Bridge of Coyle.
15.10.1926 PATRICK CARROLL aged 7 years of Gwert (it should read Guelt
Cottage as I have his birth certificate from the Register House), Old
25.01.1927 JAMES CARROLL aged 45 years of Auchencloigh Farm, Galston.
These are my grandfather and his two young sons, my mother¹s father and her
brothers! How wonderful I have found them!
My only problem now is I am confused with one of the lairs she found which
was purchased by my grandmother, ISABELLA CUTHBERT DAVIDSON CARROLL in 1927
shortly after the death of my grandfather. It was bought by her I suspect so
she could be laid to rest with the rest of her family however, her lair
suggests their was no interment there!
Does that mean she is not buried there?
