I am looking for a birth place and burial place for Alexander please. His father was James Nicholson ,haven't found his mother yet. i believe that Alexander was born 1794-96 , possibly in Edinburgh.1820 he married Mary Reid in South Leith and died in Edinburgh may 1828. Is it possible to find which cemetery he would have been buried in.Mary died in june 1849 in Edinburgh.Would she have been buried with Alexander.
Any help and advise is really appreciated thanks.

Hi Kevynne
Where did you get the dates for Alexanders birth? I can't see a birth on those dates.
Likewise on the death.Scotlands People have Alexanders born and died but not anywhere near your dates.
The only birth with right date is: Alexander Nicholson b.20thJan 1794 Angus
to James Nicholson and Katherine Lamb.
I have found a child for Alexander and Mary: Mary Gray Nicholson b.11thFeb 1821 Canongate (Edinburgh)
Mary's fathers name was David Reid.
On the marriage info it says that Alexander was a grocer.
Good luck
