|These Documents bring me to Newington Cemetery Edinburgh. Looking for James McInnes and Marion Inkster his third wife. Thinking this would be the easiest search with all the information I had gathered, this was not to be. Unlike my other visits to cemeterys this was going to be the saddest of all . I sent some emails to check out the details I had. My first disappointment was from an email from Mortonhall Crematorium who hold records for 39 cemeteries within Edinburgh, informing me there was no grave stone for my request but gave me the names of the two graves either side and a map of the area.|
disappointment was finding the terrible state the graveyard was in .Photos .
A lot of the grave stones were broken or knocked over. The ground is
very uneven and the ivy is taken over. I follow the map to the plot aim
looking for ,
|This is it ! or is it ?
At first look , at least there was something , but there are two small stones in the right and left top corners with the initials J,S,C . I would have hoped they had been J,M (James Mcinnes) . I am puzzled but still trying to investigate.
