Jodie, clicking on your ancestry family tree link in your sources doesn't get me anywhere.

I was trying to check if this was the John FAIRBAIRN, son of James FAIRBAIRN and Catherine ALLAN? He looks a bit lonely disconnected from his family. PS if so, I have that John's dth cert. and it is actually Jun 1927, not 1924. If the June 1924 death is in Scotland, the only John FAIRBAIRN indexed is that year is a 49 yr old, dying in Hawick (789/00 0209) Hope this helps
