    Default William Henry Scott fromFife movedto Carlise?

    My grandfather spent his married life in Carlisle, his birth year was 1897 (based on his age on his marriage certificate, and army medical papers). The only leads I have from my brothers/sisters are that he came from Scotland and Fife. I was unable to find any record of him as a a child via Scotland People, where else should I look?I am used to research English records, and don't know what's available for Scotish records.

    Finally, can any one suggest why a family, or someone would move from Fife to Carlisle?

    Thanks again

    Freddie

    I've found this death record, not sure if you already know about it?

    Name: William Henry Scott
    Birth Date: 2 Oct 1896
    Death Registration Month/Year: 1972
    Registration district: Carlisle
    Inferred County: Cumberland
    Volume: 1a
    Page: 90

    I've looked on Ancestry for his birth but can't find anything unfortunately.

    P.S. You say he was married. Was it to Isabella Buchan in 1919?
