Anne You might want to try www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk it is a paying sight 6 pounds per 30 credits you can look for deaths from 1855-1952 look at and print out death certificate. If the death you are looking for is prior to 1855 then this site will not have it. You can also look and print out births certificates 1854-1902. Marriages are the only ones that have to be ordered(but you can get the year of marriage up to 1925) OPR's have to be ordered to. Jane.
