On 31 December 1887, Elizabeth Bauld, wife of James Byrne, left her home in the cool of the evening to visit her father, whose end was near. After spending a short time with her parents, Elizabeth complained of feeling unwell and notwithstanding the efforts of skilled aid she quickly passed away at the age of 43. John Bauld, who was unconscious at the time of his daughter’s death died two hours later.

Does anyone know which cemetery this writer was referring to? And if so, does anyone know whether the Bauld grave still exist to this day?
Above right is a closeup of the headstone itself.
