Re: DINNES & Diverall
I went in past the Kirkyard this lunchtime and took a few quick
phonecam shots which I have transcribed below. It was just too cold
and windy to spend much time there - but I'll go back with some
warmer clothes next time to pick up on the missing part.
There are 3 stones in a row - one is obviously older than the other
two because they are granite.
The inscriptions are:
James & Barbara Diverall
in memory of
their daughter Elizabeth
who died 23rd Feby 1871 aged 29 years.
also their son
James who died in infancy.
and their daughter
Isabella who died 2nd Nov
1847 aged 3 years.
James Diverall died 17 Oct 1881
aged 73 years.
Also the above
died 25th April 1892 aged 74 years.
And their daughter
Ann Smith Diverall
died 10th July 1921 aged 70 years.
in loving memory
of his beloved wife
who fell asleep resting on Jesus
the 22nd day of November 1902
aged 85 years
died 2nd December 1913
aged 82 years
William Gordon Diverall
who died July 10th 1909
aged 75 years
also his son
who died Feb 19th 1873
aged 4 years
wife of the above
who died November xxxxxx
aged xx years
Let me know in due course if you recognise any of the above or if
any of the dates don't look quite right.
If these graves are of interest then when the weather is a little
better I will take proper pictures of them for you.
