As I have Peter Mclaren b.1885 living with his unmarried aunt Jane/Jessie Mclaren on the 1901 census I thought I would be able to find her death cert on Scotlands People but as yet have failed to locate her .Any ideas? On the census she is a boarding house keeper, Dundas st, Edinburgh. Thanks for any input.
Have you downloaded the census image from SP? Does it say that she was unmarried?

Jessie was more often a pet name for Janet. So you might find her under Janet McLaren. But it is a fairly common name ...
I was working on information given to me, I will try Janet and see what turns up.
