I have some MIs from Grantown on Spey,Scotland old cemetery, mainly for surnames Cruickshank, Grant and Mcqueen, but there are quite a lot more.It is not the full list but here goes. MIs Grantown old cemetery August 2003. These are by no means all the headstones. I was mainly looking for Grant, Cruickshank, Stuart , but other names also occur .I also have the digitalphotos if you wish them.Where the insciption was unclear I have put down what I could read and some possibilities. Good luck and hope some are yours.
