Hi FIona,

For Scottish births, marriages and deaths (BMD's) you will need to look at the website Scotlands People.
You can search the indexes, but to get the full details, which is what you are after, you will have to look at the Register entry. For this you need to buy credits.
On the same site, Scotlands People, you could search for your grandmother's marriage since you know her maiden name. Again you need to look up the index and then the Register entry for the full details. Sorry it's not free :-(

As Reggie said above, the website is pay to view.

I would suggest you go to the Scotlands People website and have a play around with it first, get used to it before you pay out any money. That way, when you do pay, there's little chance of you wasting your money ;-)

If you have any info on her Irish background, you could try looking at Roots Ireland for free....

EDIT: Sorry must have been typing this out as Stuart posted. Ooops.

If you are sure of the year she died, only one Mary Wallace shows up on Scotland's People as death 1938 in Renfrewshire, which includes Greenock
Mary Wallace death 1938 Renfrewshire Born 1897.

No further details unless you buy and spend credits - 30 credits £7

1 credit to find the record index and 5 to look at the image. You will be able to see the image if the index gives you enough to think it's the right person and download a copy. (Images not available post 1961 for deaths, marriages 1936, births 1911)

Scottish BMD's are available only on Scotlands People. It's pay to view - not a site where one can have a subscription

I am trying to find my grandmothers death record . She died in hospital greenock 1938. She was about 38yrs old, her name is Mary Wallace nee mcguire she was born in ireland but was on the 1911 census in greenock, I cannot find a marriage but my mother was given her surname of wallace. Mums birth certificate (on ancestry) doesnt have many details.
Thanks Fiona
