HelenG: Christie family

On Monday I visited my grandparents' grave, as I always do when I come to Nethy Bridge from my home in North Wales. It is so heartening to see everywhere so well kept.  My grandparents, James and Helen Christie lived at what is now Tigh na Fraoch. It was Garlogie when they lived there with my aunts, Daisy and May. It had previously been called Granlea and owned by James and Helen Asher who are buried in the next row.  My grandfather was Chief Constable of Greenock before retiring to Nethy. He died in 1960 and is buried with my grandmother who died in 1948. May died in 1968. Daisy lived to the grand age of 97. I have visited several times and find the church and grounds so peaceful. Thank you to everyone who works to keep it that way.

I today had the privilege of taking the great granddaughter and great-great granddaughter of Constable Thomas King (Inverness-shire constabulary) to visit PC King's grave. They had travelled from Queensland, Australia and they were thrilled at the warmth of the welcome received from AOKA members, and they (and I) also immensely enjoyed the fascinating items on display within the building. The play presented in the Church was an added bonus. Just a pity they were on a tight schedule and so we could not spend more time with you all. Thank you all.

Alastair Forsyth: My great grandfather

William Forsyth was my great grandfather, so I was delighted to find where he worked and where he was buried.

I look forward to visiting Nethy Bridge in the near future.

As I live in Canada it will take a little planning.
