The Record of the Monumental Stones and Family names recorded at the Churchyard

At the Churchyard of South Leith parish Church is found over three hundred headstones and these have been recorded from the 1780’s although the earliest dates from 1583. There is also in excess of 11,000 unmarked graves recorded from approximately 1824

The records for unmarked graves are to be found at the National Archives in Edinburgh for the period 1824-1856 and from that date the records to the present are held at Mortonhall Crematorium. Below are listed the names of the families who have a monumental stone marking their respective interment. Please note if your family were interred in a unmarked grave this is certainly no reflection on the family as most people in the area were in fact poor and was the reason why many people in the past left Leith to find a better future abroad.
