Hi - Alexander Campbell was my Great Grandfather, born 1858 and died age 70 1928.

 

I'm told his grave is in Aberdour but I discovered 3 graveyards when I visited Aberdour and couldn't find the grave.  I am not getting it on the "find a grave" search and I thought it would come up easily.

 

His wife was called Hellen Campbell (nee Beveridge and his father was Charles Campbell/mother (also) Helen Beveridge.

 

Would appreciate any help here?

 

Thanks

Hi Wendy,  There are three graveyards there, one now a private building.  Your Great-granddad died at 6.20 am on the 16th right enough, in Ainslie Square at Donibristle, near Aberdour, aged 70. I would hazzard a guess and presume the stone was broken when cutting the grass and removed all together. I have searched for years in graveyards and this situatuion comes up all the time. I've seen really old graveyards with ancient stones smashed to pieces. It's a real shame. I would have another search Wendy, or try another graveyard near  Aberdour............................Ron.
