I have an 1857 death cert for my relative in Dundee saying she was buried in
Mains(?) Old Church Yard as certified by Archibald Beats? undertaker in a
column marked up "Burial Place, Undertaker, or other Person, by whom
certified" & I also have one from 1860 saying buried in "Logie Burying
Ground, Dundee" - however, by the time I get to my next death in the family
in Dundee, 1863 - this column is omitted from certs.
Hope this helps.
PS: I have found out from marriage certs. that my family were Catholics,
not death certs. I have found a lot of my Dundee family attended St Josephs
Chapel, Dundee in late 1880's (from marriage certs) and luckily I have found
a lovely priest that has the records and is very helpful.
