RE: Edward Nicholls & the Lawrence Family
No, I don't think they were buried there - I think old and broken headstones were removed and taken to an old store which is no longer there. I am going to ask the current Sexton if he knows what has happened to the headstones and whether he can pinpoint this grave for you. If he can help I will get back to you. regards, Pen

Baldock Pics
Hi Peter.You will notice that ypur request for Baldock has been fulfilled but there is no pic visible. For some reason I can't explain the pic loads upside down. I have deleted it and will upload again on the weekend when I find out why it is doing that. Larry

Buried on 11-7-1949. Unmarked grave. Photo taken.
Portion:15 Grave:926.

Weeks,Mary, Age 12 Hours Old.
Buried on 1-12-1961.
Portion:8 Grave:540.

Mary Jane Weeks
Hi Peter,

I had gone to Balmoral Cemetery and located where Mary Jane Weeks was buried. Her grave is unmarked and records show that a 3 month old baby also was buried in the same grave, H. N. Weeks.

I took a photo of her grave site. If you don't want that picture let me know and i will get rid of it off her page.

If you want to find the grave she is resting on the left side of the "Male Family" grave.

Elizabeth OKE
I visited Eastbourne Rd Cemetery, St Austell today with my camera and have taken photos of Elizabeth OKE's gravesite (she shares it with a WW1 grave - William OKE). I've uploaded one photo to the site, but if you would like the others, please contact me.

Thanks for looking in Llandaff :)
Hey Peter,
It's been a year since we last spoke (and you'd pretty much fulfilled all my requests back then) so it was a nice surprise to see another request from another cemetery fulfilled by you. Good to see you're still getting out there and helping people :) How are you both?
My research has slowed a bit these days and most of my other findagrave requests have been further afield than Cardiff so not been a lot happening on that front either. We're off to Oz to see my daughter soon and then we've got another move on the horizon so hopefully I can notch my research up a gear when we get settled again.
Thanks as always for taking the time out to go rooting through shrubbery (cue Monty Python) to find these last resting places that have been forgotten by everyone but us. I as always appreciate what you do immensely.
All the best

Just re-read your message
I think you've misunderstood, the notice is written by you (Author - Peter)- when I clicked on it, it brought me to your profile - hence I was abiding by your notice. Sounds like we can continue to add photographs which is great. Many kind thanks.

RE: Photos of monuments?
Hi :) Thank you - thought someone may have complained etc so I was heading the 'warning' ;)

Many kind thanks.

RE: Emily Mitchell
There are several Symonds stones in Crowan ; would your good lady like pics ?

Added by Kevin Meagor on Jul 31, 2015 5:31 AM

RE: Photos of monuments?
No problems - thought you'd put up a soft touch warning for us not to post any photographs. It appears on every single name for all names within Cathays (your photo of the front entrance gate and then underneath a 'warning notice'. So I was playing it safe and removing photographs. Thanks for your reply.

Photos of monuments?
Hi, if you click on any person on the site – it has your photograph and states the following:

“Don’t show cemetery photos on this memorial [?]”

Any reason why we cannot put photographs of the grave?

RE: Mabe
You are welcome.
The area is a bit overgrown at the moment.
We will give it another go and try to find
Gladys when they cut it down again.

RE: Ernest Herbert Richards
Hi Jackie and Peter,
you are welcome, yes it was a lovely day.
I nearly missed the headstone it was against the wall and the Richards was very small, sorry I didn't have a brush with me or I would have cleaned it up a bit.
I had a look for a Collins grave but the only one that I could find was a John Collins who died Jan 1941 and his wife Ida Beatrice date under the grass, needs trimming. Can do if one of yours.
There is also a grave just a couple in front of Ernest of a John and Melinda Richards.

Would you like a picture of the other side added to Charles showing Annes inscription?

Thanks for the corrections.

Re: Timothy O'Keefe
Hi again Peter.

It's strange there is no record of Florinda's burial.

Her parents and brother are in D1184 - surname Mazzei but listed as Mazzia - Ferdinando buried under his English name of Frederick Mazzia 1904 - wife Mary Mazzia - 1901 - son Lewis Mazzia 1893.

In 1997 I wrote to the record office and they had a record of Frederick and Lewis, but no record of Mary! I know she's in there as I have seen (many years ago) a burial receipt for her.

Likewise Florinda's other brother is in R2109 with his wife and son - Frederick Mazzia 1906 - Elizabeth Mazzia 1901 and Frederick Mazzia 1910. Again the record office had records of the 2 Frederick's but not Elizabeth.

None of these have headstones as I have looked.

Thanks again

Hi Peter

Thank you for the photo of Timothy's and Florindas grave plot - it's looking like none of my family have headstones in Cathays.

Thanks again

RE: O'Keefe
Hi Peter

That's brilliant, thanks.

My Timothy died in either January, February or March of 1917 so I think that must be him.

I do have a lot of ancestors buried in Cathays and will also be adding those requests but find a grave only allows so many requests per week.

Thanks again

RE: Cathays Cemetery
Hi Peter,

That's great, thanks.

Thanks for the flowers as well.

I had a feeling there wouldn't be a headstone as about 15 years I went to Cathays looking for William's parents and grandparents grave R2109 and D1184) and they didn't have headstones either.

Daniel Thomas Phillips
Peter and Jackie, You are fabulous! You have gone above and beyond anything I expected. The other date is my Grandfather Albert Stanley Phillips' daughter Rene Iris Phillips 1907-1913. She died of Diphtheria. You are amazing finding the news articles.They are very informative.Gives me a few more leads to look at with the people attending his funeral. I have been unable to find any pictures of my Grandfather Albert Stanley anywhere, even though he replaced DTP as Consul. DTP and his sons Ernest (also a Consul in Switzerland) and Albert also died at age 62 (heart)on April 11 2 years apart. April 11 is my Dad's birthday so he assumed he would die on his 62nd birthday. He lived to 82.I looked at all you send with a lump in my throat. My brother Daniel Thomas Phillips II 1956-2014 died last September after heart surgery at 57.He would have loved to see all you sent. Albert and Ernest returned to Chicago to work as clerks for the Santa Fe RR. Albert kidnapped my Dad and brought him to Chicago where i was born. Left is wife and another daughter Grace. Wish I knew the why of it. It was after Rene died. I am thinking Albert wanted to return to the US and Mildred did not. Again THANKS!!
