Many thanks to Alex Rochead who sent me this 1877 list of interments at Dalbeath Cemetery. From October 1877, it features the Catholic miners who were not buried in Blantyre, but instead taken to Dalbeath (St Peters Cemetery) following their funerals.
It lists the horrifying reality of the Blantyre Mining Disaster, listing the reason those men died as “accident”. The entries are in quick fire succession, the men mostly of a young age. The register itself is held in Edinburgh.
I find this a shame that so many of the victims of the pit disaster ended up being buried outwith Blantyre.
