My Mother (non-Scottish) was buried as Ella B. Smith and when I saw it was horrified. Â She was born as Ella B. Whittier and married my Dad, David Laurie Smith (Scottish ancestry). Â I asked my Dad why he had buried her and not put her maiden name as his parents were shown as Nelson Smith and Jessie Hird (her maiden), his wife.
My Dad had no excuse but after he died, I paid a considerable sum to have my mothers maiden name put on the gravestone along with his dates.

Another interesting topic Janet and getting away from maiden surnames and even to a different country but it explains past practices - I have a 2gtgf name on a headstone in Cornwall but he was lost at sea off the Irish coast in a storm.Â No body was recovered so there are no death or burial records.Â The name on the headstone is just meant to commemorate the fact that he lived and died and was part of that family.
Have a good day
