I'm interested in the Colledge family as they were big figures in the history of the Mansewood area, which I have researched a fair bit in building my website on the subject (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/robert.leiser/mansewood/index.htm)

I've also been in touch with Colledges, and one of them spotted some additional names in the video. I went and had a look, and here is the transcript in full:

In memory of Mary Elizabeth Boag who died at Littlewood, on the 8th May 1893 in her 35th year, wife of Francis Steel Colledge, civil engineer, and of the said Francis Steel Colledge who died at Littlewood on the ?? of March 1903 (?) aged 75
And of their family
John Boag Colledge of ???????? 1921 aged 41 at Kirkmaiden, Wigtownshire
Winifred Mary Colledge who died on the 27th May 1938 aged 41?47
Margaret Hope Colledge who died on the 18th December 1963, aged 74
Lieutenant Colonel Francis William Colledge, MBE, JP, CE, who died ?? November 1967 in his 90th(?) year

I hope this helps,
