Whitehouse memorial
I am most grateful to receive the photo of the memorial for Henry David Whitehouse on the panel at Runnymede.

My mother emigrated to Canada before WWII and our family in Canada do not have a lot of family history from England.

Henry David Whitehouse was my uncle, a gunner on an RAF bomber in WWII, and was killed in 1939 at the age of 22.

Your memorial photo will be added to our family archives, and I hope to visit the memorial in person before too long.

Thanks so much for your excellent work.

RE: Louis Jacobsen Memorial
Thank you for your efforts

Louis Reginald Jacobsen was born on 5th March 1915 and grew up here in Wellington, New Zealand.
He left NZ in 1938 for a short service commission in the R.A.F. He served in Norway in Squadron 283.
He was 19 years older than me so I didn't really know him. I just remember how much his family grieved for him and his younger brother Brian who went missing over Burma and is, I believe, commemorated in Singapore.

Again, thank you for what you are doing. I believe Runnymede is a beautiful, peaceful place

Dear daglish,

Thank you very much for taking time to take the pictures. It takes a very kind person to help people you don't even know.

Like the song says:"Harrigan Harrigan that's me".

Wishing you rainbows.

Sincerely,

Linda Harrigan

Dear Daglish,

Just a quick note to say thank you for posting the photo of the headstone for David Leonard Oakenfold. He was the husband of my Mum's oldest sister and I am named after him. I have added a photo of him in uniform to his Find-a-Grave page.

Sincerely,

RE: Borough Cemetery
possibly something to do with old burial records? I have 2 that have different things written on them but suspect the same cemetery.

Whitton & Hounslow or hounslow heath may have been merged into this one or were once called something else maybe?

Parish or Poor Law Union: Hounslow Heath
Borough: Hounslow
Register Type: Parish Register

Parish or Poor Law Union: Whitton St Philip and St James

William Hick and Sarah Jane Couper
Thank you so much for your quick response and for transferring management of these two entries to my husband and I. I have just updated their birth dates and tim is leaving flowers for them. Thank you again! And when I have the chance I will pay find a grave and sponsor these entries as well. Thanks again for your work!

William Hick and Sarah Jane Couper
Hi and thank you for posting grave of William Hick and Sarah Jane Couper. They are my great grandparents in law and I am working on their family tree for my husband and his dad. I have added two photos for Sarah and William from the Couper family album. I also added Sarah's correct birthday on her photo caption. I was wondering if my husband and I could take sponsorship or ownership of these entries as they are our great grandparents? Also, I have birth and death info as well as photos for all their children and grandchildren etc and could add new Couper entries. Many Coupers are buried at Wandsworth as they were primarily from the battersea and Wandsworth areas. Please advise, would be very grateful.

Daglish
I am a Daglish descendant and am very interested in whether or not you might have any information on my line. I haven't been able to find much which is surprising due to the unusual name compared to Smith or Jones lol. My line is myself, my mother, Margaret Daglish b. 1942 Indianapolis, In (she was adopted by her paternal grandmother and name changed to Toppe); her father, Robert J. Daglish Sr born Indianapolis about 1917; his father, Raymond H. Daglish born in Marion Co., Indiana; his father, Francis J. "Frank" Daglish born Ontario; his father, John Daglish born England. I look forward to hearing from you!

Alexander Bell Filson
Thank you for putting on record the gravestone of my great-uncle Alexander Bell Filson. I'm wondering if you picked this particular gravestone to record knowing of the terrible tragedy that lay behind his and his 3 children's sudden death in January 1927.

Teddington Cemetery
Many thanks for your generous transfer of Cumes and Marchant graves to my care. I visit the cemetery at least once a week and I shall certainly update their memorial pages with any changes to the condition of their headstones as well as any further biographical information which I discover. Regards and thanks.

Richard William Haybittle
Hello Sir

I have just uploaded a photograph of Lt Richard William Haybittle who died of injuries received (gangrene) at Amara, Mesopotamia in 1918. He was my wife's grandfather. We have medals awarder to him. Would you like this on the site/
Also, my grandson is doing a project at school regarding relatives who served in the forces in World War I and requires some information about his exploits whilst serving.
Do you have any information.
Obviously, my wife can fill me in with what she knows but she does not know much about his war service.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
