Some Herald BMD from the 60s and 70s

Post by down south »

Over the years I've been trawling through my old copies of the A&S Herald posting everything I can; and I've now come to the BMD. There are about twenty papers in all, , and they comprise not only Births, Marriages and Deaths but also Engagements and In Memoriam; they may be useful to some family historians which is why I'm posting them here.

A few may be omitted or incomplete because of illegibility; sorry about that.

I'll post them in chronological order , and we first come to the birth announcements from the Herald of 7th July 1967.

For ever in our thoughts.
Johnstone, Ivy and family.

Gone, but not forgotten.
Janet.

YEAMAN/McKINNON - In fond and ever-lasting memory of my dear sweetheart, Willie Yeaman, late Glasgow Western Police; and dear friends, late 185 Glasgow Street.
Dear in my memory.
God gave me a wonderful sweetheart,
Something we cannot buy;
A gift so rare and true;
We never part from those we love,
Wonderful memories woven in gold,
That's the picture I'll always hold.
Deep in my heart I'll always love him.
The day in whose clear shining light
All wrong shall stand revealed,
When justice shall be throned in might
And every hurt be healed.
Inserted by Nell.
