Deaths in Berwick 1881


The following have been transcribed by
Janet Connochie from microfilmed copies of the Death Register of Scotland. The films were obtained through my local Family History Center.

Disclaimer: The information here has been posted in good faith. Where I have been unsure of the writing I have generally noted this with a "[?]". Any errors made are probably mine and for verification it is always recommended to consult the original record yourself. That said the transcriptions below are almost certainly accurate. Hope that makes sense!
