This evening I am presenting an image of a grave-marker from Glasgow’s Southern Necropolis.

This is an interesting record of social history as manifested by the high rate of infant mortality.

The memorial is to:

  • Thomas Cuthbert who died age 38 on Nov 2nd 1872 and his children:
  • Catherine Jane age 8
  • Elizabeth who died in infancy
  • Thomas who died July 2nd 1878 age 9
  • Wilhelmina who died age 27 on May 12th 1893.

The memorial also records the passing of Thomas’s wife Catherine Miller on Aug 7th 1879.
