Statement of accounts relating to the funeral of Archibald Baillie, 1817

The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.

A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.

This document is one in a collection of bills and receipts relating to the funeral of Archibald (Archy) Baillie who died in 1817. It is a statement listing the total amounts due to the various tradesmen and businesses involved in the funeral. The goods and services provided include burial cards, a hearse, the funeral dinner, grave linen and wine vinegar (for use as a cleaning fluid)
