Memorial Inscriptions and Photographs
of the older gravestones situated in the
Kirkyard of Monikie Parish Kirk, Angus
(formerly Forfarshire), Scotland.

PLEASE WAIT !

(Updated information and linked photographs as available.)
(Last change to webpage on 09 December, 2014)

You should be listening to Barber's
'Adagio for Strings'

As part of the year 2000 survey, indexing was carried out on a grid pattern - the first stone being in Row A (furthest west) and position 1 (furthest north), in the manner shown in the diagram. However, the stones in the kirkyard are not in their original positions and are not to be found in such a regimented grid pattern - read here what Rev. W. D. Chisholm has to say on the subject.

Please refer to the surname list below and click on the survey reference number/s alongside the chosen surname. This will link you to the inscription for that stone from a list of inscriptions reproduced further down this page. Please note that -
* Various spellings may be used on the stones.
* Not all persons named on the inscriptions are interred here.
* Some stones have no inscription, or one which is still legible, but do appear in the survey list below.
* Many of the names of persons, families and places mentioned on this page are mentioned elsewhere on this website. The best way to find them is by use of the Site Search Engine, but read the notes there first.

  An updated plan of the area around MONIKIE KIRK (some stone references shown) now also shows the lair numbers for the first kirkyard extension.   Please note that the numbers are those used by Angus Council who maintain the kirkyard.  

 August 2002.  The memorial inscriptions and photographs for the stones of the First Extension are now available HERE

An large aerial photograph of the Kirk and most of the old kirkyard and first extension.
Taken before 1994 when concealed stones were 'discovered'.

(Alongside the grid numbering reference used in the list, some stones have a reference number attributed by the Scottish Genealogical Society during a partial survey in 1974. The results of that survey were published and is a well-used resource, however, the list on this page is more comprehensive and differs in much detail and content from that publication. SGS * indicates that no comparative entry seems to appear in the S.G.S. publication, possibly due to the restrictive manner of recording used.)

Many old inscriptions are so difficult to read in many instances that two persons might not agree on the original inscription. Although reasonable effort was made to accurately gather and reproduce the information here, it is the responsibility of the researcher to confirm the information. In order to assist researchers, in some cases the Old Parish Records and other sources have been inspected to help clarify or add some detail, or complete some missing information - the data includes mortcloth and marriage/banns records - such additional or alternative information is in red type.

(S.G.S. refer to seven unseen stones, mentioned by Jervise; of these, S.G.S. references 116 and 117 may both refer to the stone O06; that and another two flat stones, K04 and P05, were uncovered in 1994. The other 'unseen stones' are listed at the foot of the main inscription list below.)

Researchers will know that spellings can cause problems when looking for a name, or a place. As an alternative to using the following alphabetic SURNAME list you may wish to use your browser's FIND (not SEARCH) facility - CTRL+F in MS Internet Explorer - and look for only PART of a name. As a last resort you can read through the whole inscriptions list shown below.

Read HERE about the stones in the Kirkyard, and the recording of the inscriptions.

If you find any bad links in this webpage, or errors in any information shown - or can you add to these lists or references, from your personal viewing of the inscriptions in the kirkyard, or from your own family records - please advise the webmaster. It is the ideal that this webpage continues to develop in content, over time, with the aid of subscribers to build a complete list of all relevant information. If YOU can contribute in any way to making this page the authoritative source of information regarding the stones at Monikie Kirkyard your contribution would be very welcome, thank you.

Repeat for effect :^) - Whether you are successful, or not, in finding an entry in the inscription list you are strongly recommended to use the website search engine to check for other matches of interest to you elsewhere on this website. Because of the differences in spellings over the years you should try searching for several variations which you may know - e.g. search GUILDY and GUILDIE; DOUNIE for DOWNIE; AFFLECK was formerly known as AUCHINLECK, etc!

(The names of the dead of this parish from the two world wars, taken from tablets in the two local churches, are available here.)
