Findmypast adds Scotland, Lanarkshire Death & Burial Index 1642-1855

There are 64,144 entries in this database from the following burial places: Avondale, Blantyre, Bothwell, Cadder, Cambuslang, Cambusnethan, Carluke, Carmichael, Carmunnock, Carnwath, Carstairs, Covington & Thankerton, Crawfordjohn, Culter, Dalserf, Dalziel, Douglas, East Kilbride, Glassford, Govan, Hamilton, Lesmahagow, Libberton & Quothquan, New Monkland, Pettinain, Rutherglen, Shotts, Stonehouse, Symington, Wandell & Lamington, Winston & Roberton.

Information provided may include: first name(s), last name, birth year, death year,  death date, burial year, burial date, burial place, county, country, notes, mortcloth price.

I checked the 565 Reid entries. 161 had only the last name; there were 9 where the forename was Mrs. or widow. Judging by the helpful notes many of the 161 would appear to be children.

The information is sourced from transcript publications of the Lanarkshire Family History Society.
