Kirkcolm Death Entries 1854

The following is a transcription of the death register found in Kirkcolm's old parish records for the period of 1796-1854. Every effort was made to remain true to the information, but it is possible that a few misinterpretations have crept into the work. We encourage researchers to use this only as a finding tool, and to verify the information for themselves by viewing a film of the opr.
