Search this index of monumental inscriptions and discover your Scottish ancestry. The records provide your ancestor’s burial place and age at the time of death.

The Scotland monumental inscriptions index includes records from 14 Scottish counties including the Isle of Skye. In this index, you will find burials as early as 1507, like Robert Graham buried at Kinneff church in Kincardineshire, and as recent as 2016, like Morag Hamilton buried in Carmichael cemetery in Lanarkshire.

Below we have provided a full list of the burial grounds available. They are organised by county and provide the minimum and maximum years found in the index. These year ranges are not exclusive and some records may have gaps within the years provided.
