The following records will be available for research:-

  • A full listing if inscriptions in Liberton Churchyard.
  • A list of over 400 men of WW1 and WW2, buried or commemorated in Liberton, Mount Vernon, and Newington Cemeteries.
  • Over 12,000 records of Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths, from 1898 to 1990, extracted from the Church Magazines.
