Dear Reverend Father
My family had very close ties with the Sacred Heart for many years
and my father Henry ( mainly known as Harry by all and sundry )
was a proper and correct person and carried out his duties to his Church
and his family with the greatest reverence.
My Grandmother and all her family lived in 5 Reid St ,
a beautiful old building demolished many years ago and I myself was an Altar Boy
in the Sacred Heart and it was easy for me as I used to climb up on to the old "washoose" roof ,
dreep down in to the old Sacred Heart shool's playground.
Then climb up on to the toilets of the school then dreep into the boys part of the school,
run then by Br Christopher. Back door of the church,
and I was there most mornings for 8.30 mass.
Granny mum and my mum made sure my surplus was always well pressed.
I am hoping you will include my father in the book of remembrance
as our family was so enveloped within the Church from about pre-1914
as the family came from the area. From around my school days 1966-1971
( Sacred Heart) 1971-1977 (St Mungo's Academy)
IN REMEMBRANCE TO MY FATHER HENRY GILMOUR BURNS
ALWAYS A SMILE ON MY FACE WHEN I THINK OF MY DAD.
Derek H Burns.
Dear Sacred Heart,
Would you be kind enough to add this person to your book of remembrance:
Derek G. Brechin
Please place him next to his father, Richard J. Brechin, already in your book.
Derek suddenly passed away on November 6, 2009.
Although Derek lived in the USA for over 40 years,
Sacred Heart School and Parish was thought of fondly in his memories.
He served as an alter boy with Sacred Heart during the 1960s.
Thank you so much,
Alice Goldberg (his sister)

My grandmother Catherine Heaney married name Wilson died in 1922 aged 22
after giving birth to twins one of which was stillborn and this is really all I ever knew
about my grandmother. I have searched for many years to try and find out where
she is buried and recently I found that she is buried in common ground in
St. Peters cemetery London Rd. so there is no way I can even visit her grave
and there is no lasting reminder of my grandmother that is why I would like her name
added to your book of remembrance, to show that she is still remembered.
She was born in Ann Street in Bridgeton around 1900
so maybe she would have been baptised in your church.
I would very much appreciate it if you could add her name.

Would you please add my father Henry Gilmour Burns to the book of
My father and his two sisters Maurade who still lives in Bridgeton in
Dalmarnock Rd, and Sarah (Sadie)
were regular and I myself served on the altar at the Sacred Heart.
My father a keen photographer has a May Day process ion on Super 8
which I have now on Video
and hope to transpose to DVD which I will copy to the parish when done.
My father and all his family were integral in Parish and had my dad
known about the Tridentine I am sure he would have come along , but for his illness.
Anyway I hope you will include my father's name as Sacred Heart was always in His Heart!
Derek H Burns
