The recording of Boleskine Burial Ground was started by Heritage Group volunteers led by Frank Ellam around 2006. The newer part of the graveyard was recorded and a few of the stones in the older part was also done, prior to Frank leaving the area around 2015. In April 2019, Heritage Group Committee members Duncan Cameron and Alister Chisholm along with Allison Cameron and David Smith decided to restart the recording of the graveyard again. With Frank’ earlier recordings available, we continued following the same format as before with slight amendments. The original graveyard layout plan and the memorial recording spreadsheet was checked to ensure there had not been any interments since Franks groups had stopped doing the work. The work recording the memorials now began as well as the upright gravestones, the buried flat gravestones location and details were also recorded. To find the buried flat grave stones a stick with a metal spike in it was used to prod the ground, when you found an anomaly bigger than a small stone you carefully cut the turf outline of the object and rolled back the turf to expose the flat stone. The location and details are then recorded and the turf carefully placed back on them to preserve them. On some flat stones the roots of the turf fill up the lettering on the stone, so you can read the information on the stone from the turf, albeit backwards. Graveyard recording progressed over the rest of 2019 with some help also from other Heritage committee members, but with the outbreak of COVID in early 2020 put the project in ambiance once again. We only managed one day recording on site in 2021 due to further COVID restrictions. In 2022 we received an offer from Lifescan (Scotland), a manufacturing firm in Inverness, to give CSR assistance in recording the Boleskine Burial Ground. Lifescan is dedicated in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) regarding their work with local communities, the graveyard recording project filled all the criteria necessary for CSR assistance. We hosted five CSR days at the graveyard during August and September with between four to eight people each day. They were put into teams of two or three dependant on work needing done, which included searching and uncovering flat stones, recording the inscription on the upright stones and final checking of previous recorded stones to ensure that the details were 100% right. Every one of the Lifescan employees were very enthusiastic and diligent about the project, some coming back on their own time to assist on another day. It was through that concerted effort that we were able to complete the recording of the graveyard this year. With the completion of the recording of the graveyard. we are now able to take enquiries from the public regarding interments. There will be a cost for this which will be split between the Heritage group and a fund which we will use for maintenance and upkeep of the buildings and surroundings within the cemetery. For the initial enquiry to see if your ancestor is interred in Boleskine, there will be a search fee of £2 an name. We will require payment with request, which should include person’s name and as much info on them as possible, ie year of birth or death, possible place where stayed and spouse or parent’s names. If successful, we will send you for a further fee of £6 a picture of the memorial along with a verified inscription on memorial.
