Didn't our other doctor, John Conway, also live on Monteith Row?

Just noticed that article suggests he's in St Andrew's Cemy, Dumfries, not St Joseph's.

I'm not a local, are they the same place?

I was quite surprised when i first read that he was in St Josephs as i was sure you had to be a Marist.

There is a graveyard directly over the wall from St Josephs which i believe is St Michaels

Probably interred here http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&t=m&cbll=55.06093,-3.59117&cbp=12,0,0,0,5&ll=55.06093,-3.59117&z=16&layer=c

Looked up the map, St Josephs and St Andrews are on the same road (Craigs) but probably about a mile or more away, for those who was down at Dumfries for the Brother Walfrid ceremony its away by the pub we visited, pity a few never knew that and gave up their sausage rolls and paid it a visit :wink:

News of Willie's death even made the Australian newspapers.

THE CATHOLIC PRESS (Sydney), 10 June 1937:

Scottish Catholic Notes.

The medical profession in Glasgow sustained a great loss recently by the death of one of its most skilful physicians and surgeons in the person of the late Dr. William F. Kivlichan, M.B., Ch.B., M.A. Born at Dumfries, in 1885, Dr. Kivlichan receiv- ed his early education at St. Joseph's College (Dumfries), and later at the Glasgow Academy. His brilliant scholastic career was terminated at the Glasgow University, where he graduated in Arts, Medicine, and Surgery. At the invitation of Dr. Thomas Colvin, K.S.G., Dr. Kivlichan began to practise in Glasgow. Dr. Kivlichan 's renown was not confined to the medical world, for, in his younger days, he was a noted footballer, and thus his fame had spread far and wide. He was one of the few who played for both Rangers and Celtic. While playing for Celtic, he won three Scottish League champion- ship medals, and a Scottish Cup badge. His play attracted the attention of the international selectors, and he was chosen to represent Scotland against the Irish League in 1910 and 1911. His interest in the sport did not die when he withdrew from active participation in the game; he always manifested the deepest interest in the affairs of Celtic, and right up till the last his knowledge and experience of the game was always at the disposal of his old club. Thus, the demise of Dr. Kivlichan will be mourned by one and all — his numerous patients, the followers of the association code, and the police, among whose ranks he was held in the highest esteem. — R.I.P.
