I'd like a look up please for the WALKER family in Midlothian in 1891.
William b. ? age of 75 at death in 1896 does not add up!!
Grace b. ? c. ? 12 Feb 1842 Temple, Midlothian d. 8 Jul 1896 Stobhill
They married in 1880 in St Andrew Edinburgh City.
I don't know if they had any children. I'm sorry but that's all I have.

Thank you. You have found them. I have some details that confirm it. The W = West her father's name.
The Tombstone of George West and Grace Horn Temple Midlothian in Edinburgh
Erected by G & J WEST
WILLIAM WALKER husband of the above G.WEST died 2nd November 1896 aged 75 years
The G. West is her father George and the G & J are Grace herself and brother Joseph. I have a copy of the death certificate of Grace's mother Grace, in part... Son Joseph West was living at Clayhouses, Gorebridge.
And the inscription on the tombstone about William being 75 in 1896 looks like it is correct after all. I took it as an error in reading the worn carving.

Not on the WALKER family thanks but I have more on the WEST family.
It's probably better if I continue in the WEST topic.
