Kirkyards Illustrated Those of you who previously visited this website
will notice that it is now no longer possible to view the parish gravestones
through these pages. I have launched a new genealogy/history venture at www.kirkyards.com
and I now offer for sale a CD containing the inscriptions from every gravestone
in both the Old Kirkyard at Buittle and the more modern cemetery nearby.
Each inscription is accompanied by a high resolution digital photograph of the
gravestone, and contained on the CD are other items of historical interest.
