RE: R G Painter
Hello Robert,

Beside taking pictures of wargraves, I have now started with my wife a small business in which we are placing dayfresh flowerboucquets on wargraves, memorials, cemeteries from Ypres to the Somme. I have started this business due to the many requests from people around the world.

This service can be found on our website:

In the customer section you will find an example of a commemoration I did last week for a Scottish client in Dunkirk.

If this service would interest you please drop me an email:

It would be great if you could share this with people you know.

best regards,
Claude Verstraete

Thank you ever so much for taking the photograph of my grandfather's grave. (Frank Robin Fletcher) It is impossible to get into this cemetery to visit the graves of many of my relatives. This cemetery has fallen into a state of disrepair. The cemetery has been neglected and it has been closed for public viewing.
Again thanks for all the work you do.

I'd like to thank you for adding my relatives to find-a-grave. I don't know if you are transcribing the entire cemetery, but you are doing a great service for the community and beyond.

Thanks again for the transfer of Jennie. Nellie, who is also listed on the gravestone was Jennie's half-sister. She died in Long Beach, CA 18 Feb 1969. Wish I knew if she was actually in the same spot as Jennie! - Connie

Thanks very much for the super photos of the Greatsingers in Sunnyside Cemetery. I'm in Italy and it's unlikely that I would be able to visit Long Beach myself to see the stone. You are doing a very nice community service by volunteering to photograph gravesites, one that I appreciate very much. Thanks again, Steve Barneby

Hello Robert,

I'm just so delighted to receive the photo of my Aunt Emma's stone. This means so much to me. Thank you, Robert! She was very sweet and precious to me...

Again, many, many thanks!


I don't know why I previously called you by John; my apologies. *blush*

RE: Anthony Photo
As you enter the cemetery, it is along the fence on the west side - about 3/4 of the way back (going from the front to the back). There is a beautiful round Monument (red stone) with FRENCH on it that is before the stone. Your gr grandfather's stone is down but resting on the base.
Glad I could help.

Thank you very much for adding him to his parents. I really appreciate that. I also added a photo of him on his memorial page. Thanks again. I'm glad that all of Alva & Sibbie's kids can be together. Thanks!

Thank You!
Hi Robert,

I sincerely wanted to thank you SO VERY MUCH for finding my mother's gravesite. Yesterday marked the 23rd year of her passing, and coming online browsing just to see if anyone found her, I am extremely overjoyed. Please know that you are a very special and kind person to do this. And your efforts will never go unnoticed! =)

You take care of yourself.

Fred Burnett tombstone picture
Robert, thanks very much for finding the grave of Fred Burnett and taking a picture of his tombstone and posting the picture on his memorial on Find A Grave. The picture of the tombstone is something I thought I would never have. I live in Missouri and will never be able to visit Fred Burnett's grave. I am very grateful to you for taking the time to take the picture. Fred Burnett was my grandfathers brother.
