Kirkyard


With the great interest today in genealogy the following list of monumental inscriptions to be found in Duddingston Kirkyard, which was produced by a past researcher, can be found on this page. The details are necessarily brief but, if they help with your family tree please let us know and perhaps with your help we can add a little to the information on the headstones.


We regret that we cannot help with further research as the inscriptions on the stones are all that we have.
