Kinneddar Cemetery, Lossiemouth
I went along to Kinneddar Cemetery when I was at Lossiemouth to copy the inscription on a gravestone which I saw when there previously.
It had turned out that it was connected to my husband's family. However, the gravestone had disappeared, and vandals had damaged others.
So I decided to copy the inscriptions on those I could read, in case they disappeared too.
I have started on the right hand side from the gate, and have copied them up and
down the rows.
Where I have moved to another easily identifiable area of the cemetery,
I have noted it on the first page of those inscriptions, and have started the numbering at the
beginning again. I do have a note of the rough area in which they are, but I haven't
worked out how to copy that on to this site.
I am adding to this as I visit Lossiemouth,
which I don't do as regularly now, so it may well take a while. :o(
that I haven't included verses, only names and dates, though I would be happy
to take photos or go back and complete inscriptions if asked. The punctuation
is mine, as I'm incapable of writing without commas and full stops.
PLEASE NOTE: I no longer live in Morayshire, and haven't been able to update the inscriptions, but the last time I was down, I took photos of all the remaining stones(I think) and they can be accessed from the end of the MIs or from the Gravestones link on the index.
ADDENDUM: Been back and have taken all of the stones in Kinnedar, though not all are uploaded because not all are legible, so most of the stones where there are inscriptions should have pictures now.......accessed as above. I do intend to link to them individually from the inscriptions....but it won't be soon.
