The Index

The following simple index of all post-Reformation Scottish mausolea showing family name and location is under constant review and amendment.

To allow easy search we index on family surnames. Where there are more than one branch of the same surname we add an estate such as the Campbells. Where we are as yet unaware of the family surname, we have indexed by a location in brackets.

Where further information on a particular mausoleum has been added to the site, you will be able to click in the link on the family surname.

If you have recent photographs of any of these mausolea, or information on the history, we would be delighted to hear from you – please email
