THE TATTIE KIRK OF FALKIRK - BURIAL RECORDS

The Tattie Kirk lies just to the East of the Cow Wynd in what is now the centre of Falkirk. Despite this,
it is known to very few in Falkirk. The Kirk building is unusual in that is is octagonal in shape.

The first burial recorded in the church records was in 1827 at which time the congregation was part of the United Secession Church. In 1847 they combined with the Relief Church to form the United Presbyterian Church. In 1879 the congregation moved to Grahams Road.

The Tattie Kirkyard
There is a wealth of information about the Kirk and its graveyard in Calatria No. 12
(Journal of the Falkirk Local History Society). It includes much detail about who was buried there.
Because this information was not in a form particularly suitable for genealogists to use, the Society has extracted and re-arranged it by kind permission of the Local History Society.

Burial Information
Two quite separate sources of information were provided. Because these do not necessarily match, two lists have been prepared. One is based on the register of burials 1827-1869 & 1884-1891 (SRO CH3/1222/20). The other is from an inventory of surviving grave markers. Much deterioration of the markers has occurred so, where necessary, details have been supplemented by information from the data recorded by Mitchell & Mitchell in the late 1960's (Monumental Inscriptions of Stirlingshire, 1972).
