Alison English from the north west of Ireland is looking for some help from Falkirk Bairns from an older generation.

She is researching her family tree and is looking for stories and details regarding her great aunt and uncle William and Sarah Henderson (nee Mathieson).

William was 86 when he passed away at his home in Glenbrae, Falkirk in 1970.

Alison said: “They were both well known in the musical world in Falkirk. William was an organist at both Camelon Parish Church and Falkirk Parish Church.

“He was also principal of Henderson, Dickson & Co. Tea Merchants. He married Sarah Mathieson of Underwood, who was a member of a well known restauranteur family. William was also a noted golfer and champion of Glenbervie. If any readers could give me any more details I would be very grateful.”
