Dear Andrew,

I have found an entry in the records for Eastern Necropolis (also known as Janefield Cemetery) for the burial of William Innes, and below are details taken from this cemetery’s lair register:

Certificate: 1107 Name of lair owner: John Viner, 48 Franklin Street Compartment: 11 Lair no: 8292 and 8293

Date of burial Name of deceased Age Lair 7 Jul 1857 John Viner 41 years 8292

I also made a search for his wife Jean Innes, but I’m afraid that I haven’t found any entries in the records here for her burial. It may be worth checking with the local Bereavement Services for North Lanarkshire Council and/or Stirling Council (Kilsyth might come under both authorities!).

There is a charge of £20 for the above searches, which includes research costs. I would be grateful if you could forward payment to me at the address in my signature below, either by cheque (payable to Culture and Sport Glasgow) or by credit/debit card by completing the attached form. Please note that we do not currently have a secure online payment system and we do not advise returning this electronically. The form can be printed and returned as a hardcopy to the below address. Alternatively, we can take your card details over the phone at 0141 287 2910.

We don’t hold a detailed lair map of the cemetery I’m afraid, but general maps are available on our website at: http://www.glasgowfamilyhistory.org.uk/ExploreRecords/Pages/Burial-Lair-and-Cremation-Registers.aspx .

Unfortunately I haven’t found any early photographs of Cowcaddens Street, although there are some from the 1920’s to 1960’s on our Virtual Mitchell website: http://www.mitchelllibrary.org/virtualmitchell/index.php which may be of interest to you.

Kind Regards Nerys
