I am trying to find the death cert for Lanchan Grant I know he was still alive in
1881 I have found him on a Census but he is not on the Census in 1891 and the family is in the census 1891
I have look on SP but can't find the right Lachlan
He was born about 1801 In Strath and Married Hellen Chrisholm and remarried Margaret Matheson
Any help would be great
Cheers Jan

How widely are you casting your net in searching for death certs ( I assume that his wife is shown as a widow in the 1891?)? By the end of the 19th century, people were starting to die in hospitals (or almshouses) if the family couldn't cope. One of mine who'd been living on Leysmill in the middle of Angus turned out to have died in St Andrews, miles away from his own home, but not far from that of his eldest son.

Hi Lesley
I have just search Inverness
I will have a go at searching the whole of Scotland and then try and narrow it down with dates before I look at the cert
