Loudoun Kirkyard still has a few remaining memorial stones although regrettably there are no lair books or official records of burials. In 2008, a graveyard survey was completed to record any stone found in the burial ground so that at least there would be a record of visible inscriptions available for the future. Many gravestones have been broken or removed and used elsewhere, some of them make up the border around the perimeter path. One is even in the surrounding wall.
Interested in finding out more about who was buried in the kirkyard, some basic family history research was started. As this was voluntary, research was carried out using as much free information as possible however in order to ensure the family tree had the right connections, sometimes it was necessary to *download registrations from scotlandspeople.gov.uk although because this exercise was not getting funded, much of it was reliant on sites such as familysearch.ord and FREECEN.
There has been many interesting families researched and we are happy to share whatever information we have and we would also be interested in hearing from anyone else who’s ancestors are included in the kirkyard. Also interested in collecting family stories, whether real, legend or just plain myth
