Perth Infirmary records for 1882

Postby PatW » Thu Dec 12, 2019 7:58 pm

Is it possible to access the Perth (Scotland) Infirmary records online and if so where. I am looking for a death which is supposed to have taken place there in 1882

Many thanks

Hi Grace
Yes I've tried Scotlands People and input a search for the death but it comes up with no results but I have just started using this web site so any tips you can give me would be appreciated.

Thanks

Records for Perth Royal Infirmary (I assume it's the correct place) are held by the University of Dundee Archive Services. See https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/search/archives/5c3d4b2c-443f-3d0f-b449-d903d972bc7a

Based on what it says there, no, they are not online. However, I have previously obtained records for my GG-GM from the University of Dundee Archive Services, albeit that was for a completely different hospital. I think I started by sending them an email quoting the archive description of the hospital in question just to show that I knew what I was talking about and ensure that we both understood which hospital it was! They then scanned the pages - for a cost, of course.

NB - the Archives will have the medical records - death certificates will be held by ScotlandsPeople as suggested above.

Thanks very much for that information. I'll try that line of enquiry next.
