I'm looking for death and or burial record for someone who must have died between 1740 and 1746.
There are 2 children with the same name Andrew, with the same parents-, one baptised September 1740 and a second child baptised April 1746.
Records exist for both children's baptisms on Scotland's People including both parents full names.
I know death and burial records were kept at that time, there seems to be far fewer death records than marriage or baptism.
Were death and burial records not regularly kept at that time? Or do I assume they were destroyed, lost or ??
I'm happy with entering died before 1746 for the first child, however other researchers of the same family are not.
