It is normally possible to trace each family branch back to the late 17th century, although this cannot be guaranteed in each case. It is also possible to trace lineage forwards, to locate surviving family in Scotland. The cost for Family History Research is £39 per hour . It is advisable however, to commission at least 2 or 3 hours research to allow a comprehensive report to be completed. If you have a simple, particular request which does not require a report, one hour research should be sufficient. Please note that the cost for this service is payable in advance. Should we be unable to trace the person's details, we will contact you with the appropriate advice. A full refund will follow. If the cemetery in question is Barnhill or Western(Perth Road) these archives haven’t been listed in alphabetical order, therefore this search takes longer. Anything before 1900 the writing can be harder to decipher so may involve a check in the lair books. The Cemeteries are as follows: Western Cemetery, Perth Road (1845 onwards), Eastern Necropolis, Arbroath Road (1862 onwards), Balgay Cemetery, Western Necropolis (1862 onwards), Birkhill (1989 onwards), Pitkerro Grove (2015 onwards). Burial History Request Form Floral Tributes at Birkhill Cemetery During times of hard frost or snow cover there may be a possibility of some floral tributes being eaten by the Rabbits and the Roe Deer, this is due to the animals finding it difficult to source food in the surrounding areas. To alleviate this problem we would recommend that cellophane wrappings be kept on the tributes, or checking the list of plants that the Rabbits and Roe Deer may not eat, a list is also available on the cemetery notice board and in the cemetery waiting room. Nepeta (catmint), Helichrysum (curry plant), Symphytum (comfrey), Bergenia, Fuchsia, Heather, Yucca, Brunnera, Tradescantia, Hardy Geranium, Digitalis, Aquilegia, Echinops, Zantedeschia, Geum, Alchemilia, Hosta, Crocosmia, Astilbe, Stachys, Narcissus, Rudbeckia, Anemone, Vinca, Thalictrum, Aconitum, Aster.
