Hi Evelyn, Your Great-gran died at 10.15 am on the day you mention at the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh, aged 31. Her husband was a Spirit Dealer's Assistant and his middle name was Burnet. The address is as you said and with a little searching my educated guess is the church service was held at Greyfriars Church where she would have then been interred. This churchyard is the nearest to Rossie Place and would be worth a search for your Great- Gran. I do hope you succeed..............................Ron. is a privately owned website with no affiliation to any Local Councils.
