Connell Dietrichsen Ancestry Glasgow

This evening, I am posting an image of a grave stone from Eastwood Old Cemetery, Glasgow.

This records the death of Connell Dietrichsen, husband of Florence McIntosh ( probably also son of Algernon Dietrichsen) who was born Feb 10th 1884 and died July 5th 1949.
