I am trying to find a date of death for Charles Rattray who was born in 1842 in Kirriemuir.
He was the son of John Rattray & Elspeth Watson
Charles married Margaret Potts in Dundee in 1863.
Charles was living with his son in law and his daughter(William & Mary Ann Watt) in Dundee according to the 1911 Census
Charles wife Margaret died in 1902.
I cannot find a date for Charles death.
I have also contacted The Clan Rattray Website who have a Geneology Section but they were unable to assist me.
Charles Rattray was my Great Great Grandfather.
Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Dougie

Unless you think he died in England then as you probably know it will be Scotlandspeople which is not a subscription site.

Have you done a search using variation of the surname on SP

SP gives 3 matches on name and a death between 1911 and 1942 using year of birth as 1842

Have you checked out all three

Thanks Ann but I already have this information.
What I have been trying to find out is the date of Charles Rattray's death.
Charles' daughter Mary Ann Watt died in 1921 in Dundee but I can find no trace for a death for Charles
