  1. Hello, I believe that Cairneyhill Parish Church was formerly an Anti-Burgher Church.Do you know who holds the Parish Records for the 18th and 19th Century as they are not included in the Church of Scotland ones.I am trying to trace Christian Fotheringham nee Stalker who is buried in Cairneyhill Churchyard.Kind Regards.JohnSent from my Galaxy

  2. Hi John. Thanks for your comment, how nice to hear from you. Indeed Cairneyhill was originally anti-burgher. The National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh hold Cairneyhill’s Kirk Session records (ie parish records). I enquired a few months ago and they’re aiming to digitise Cairneyhill’s Kirk Session records onto the government’s Scotland’s People website by the end of this year. In the meantime I’ll check my list of Cairneyhill gravestones for you. Best wishes. Jacqueline.
