Information on many of the graveyards and cemeteries in Caithness is held at the North Highland Archive in Wick.
Their contact details may be found here: http://www.caithness.org/community/museums/nha/index.htm
Try whizzing off an email to them with what you know. They may be able to look up the grave location, or put you in contact with someone else who can.

i don't know if its the same in your area, but here in Bristol some cemeteries have a full time groundsman & with prior arrangement they will show you the position of the grave if you know the grave number.

Just a question are you close to Locksbrook cemetery as I have someone buried there and need for a volunteer to take pictures for me. I would love to do it myself but I am in Canada, let me know and I will send the particulars to anyone who is able to help out.
