Tower of Sark

Tower of Sark graveyard is on the site of the old Morton parish church, but

there is no sign of the church building now. There are many very old grave-

stones with armorial bearings here, many Armstrongs in particular.

A transcript of the pre 1855 gravestones was recorded by Gilchrist and

Shannon in the 1960s, and now is published by the Dumfries and Galloway

Family History Society. Many of the stones appear to have been stacked on top

of each other, so many are illegible now, however there are some photo-

graphed here which were not recorded by Gilchrist and Shannon. My tran-

scripts are taken from the photos so are not guaranteed accurate!

Photos taken at Tower of Sark are in my online album HERE - arranged in al-

phabetical order. Transcripts are under each photo, or can be downloaded as a

PDF file.
