The kirkyard is not named per cemeterist project standards. I will be renaming the category.

Natalie, Categorization Project

posted by Natalie (Durbin) Trott
Thankyou Natalie - I was not sure whether it would fall under the cemeterists project or not, so was not sure how to proceed, so I treated it as a nested category to both my OPS and the parish. I have trouble understanding the various hierarchial nesting of categories. The Cemeteries appear to be nested under current Local authority boundaries (eg East Ayrshire) rather than the parish/District that existed at the time of the burials. Is that because they are visited in current times and so are located under current administrations There is no website for the kirkyard that I am aware of. ...... cheers ... Hugh
