Interred in common ground
From Jim Leonard - 'The reason that Margaret who died in 1908 was sent back to Cambusnethan for burial was that paupers had
to have 7 years residency in the parish before they could claim poor relief. Margaret obviously didn't have
enough residency in Bellshill (Bothwell parish) so Cambusnethan parish had to "Accept Liability" (the phrase
used in the original claims).'
