We gratefully acknowledge the assistance rendered by the following groups:-
The Eastwood Photographic Society who recorded the image of every gravestone ; the librarians of E. Renfrewshire who responded willingly and patiently to our researchers ; Cauldstanes for modernising the web site whilst remaining faithful to the original style; the clever people of Precise Web Solutions who designed the C.D. ROM and the original web site; the ‘Awards for All’ team who guided us through the completion of an application form ; The Heritage Lottery Fund who granted us funds to develop and promote the project; the Kirk’s assistance with accommodation for meetings; the families of the Mearns who readily and wholeheartedly provided accounts of their forebears’ lives in the Mearns and in so doing breathed life into the project.
We have endeavoured to compile an accurate record of the graveyard.
Our Page 2 Family Histories are in many instances based on accounts relayed to the team by Mearns family members.
We are conscious of the personal and sensitive nature of these contributions and have sought to transcribe these
accounts both faithfully and sympathetically especially as they portray aspects of bygone days.
Nevertheless, there may be discrepancies and errors in our record and for these we apologise in advance. If such are made known to us the data on the web site will be amended.
