Madge Metcalfe

I did some research recently on Madge Metcalfe who has an unmarked grave in Cathcart cemetery. Her address was 17 Craigmillar Road Battlefield when she died in 1908 age 50. Her husband was Arthur Jefferson and her famous son was Stan Laurel. When Laurel and Hardy came to Glasgow in the mid 1950's, Stan went looking for his mothers grave but never found it.

This is the site of her grave (where the white flowers are)


If you require the exact location try contacting Glasgow historian & cemetery expert Ronnie Scott:
