>I knew there would be something I should have said, or said differently. ;-) My query was not about Cruden or BRAND, more a general comment for anywhere in Scotland. In other words, are burial records held in Local Authority offices anywhere in Scotland.
For the burial grounds in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Banffshire,
Kincardine and Moray the answer to that question is available via the
website I have flagged up:
To get the information on any particular burial ground, either click on
one of the coloured markers on the map, or select the name of a burial
ground from the drop-down list at the top of the right-hand screen pane.
I cannot offer information with the same degree of detail for the rest
of Scotland, but as burial is now a responsibility of local government,
and as the then County Councils took over responsibility for the vast
majority of existing burial grounds around 1930, then such burial
records as do exist are generally going to be held by local councils
However, since (a) such records differ widely in their accuracy,
completeness and start date and (b) different local authorities are
liable to organise their departments and records in different ways,
there is not going to be a single, simple, general answer "for anywhere
in Scotland" - you will have to find out the state of play for each
local authority area you are interested in.
>Not every death certificate states where the deceased is buried in whatever place they died.
This was included in Registration of Deaths only from 1855 to 1860.
