Hi Everyone,

I am searching for any information on Dalbeth Cemetery in Glasgow. I would like to find any history on this cemetery and possibly get a pic or info on a certain grave.

Peter Farrell buried at Dalbeth Died 14 Apr 1886 in Anderston, Glasgow. Crypt #108 , single layer , east end. Certificate # 673 . Date of Puchase ( 13 Jun 1863 ) by William Gilmour, superintendent of cemetery.

Peter Farrell's mother died in 1861 and I think she might be buried in this cemetery also, and maybe that is why he purchased a plot for himself before his death. His mother was Ann Flood , formally Farrell, nee Devlin. Ann Devlin married a Patrick Farrell after he died she got married to a Luke Flood. I really don't know which name would be on her tomb ?

If anyone could posssibly help with this search, please let me know.

Hi ,

Thanks for replying to this post. Since making this post I have found alot of information about this cemetery .

The cemetery that I have family members in is Old Dalbeth Cemetery . I have found through another family member the actual cemetery records that states that they are in fact buried there.

Unfortunately , this cemetery at the present time isn't open to the public. It had become overgrown from lack of care . I think alot of the graves have been lost because of this . I am hoping after they clean the cemetery up that i will finally be able to locate the graves .

Again, thank you for replying .

Megan

I'm hoping you might have gotten a website/or email address that one can use to research their family member that is buried in Dalbeth Cemetery. I just found that I have 3 family members buried there. Any help you could give me on researching information on a family member at Delbeth Cemetery since I live in the USA>

Many thanks.

I couldn`t help myself I know I might be a bit forward,but if you are going to Dalbeth is there any chance that you could possibly take a photo of my Grandfathers grave. He is in lair number 972 Sect 17 Div W his name is Thomas Gibb died in 1947. I have never met him and it would be something to see his grave if it is still there.
