Dwight Baker
MM Suffix
I did some research on the first request and found it was for Military Medal and I have no problem putting in on there. I just wanted you to know that it causes the "see who else is buried in the same cemetery etc." to not show the others with that surname since it is specific and will only show others with an MM also. The suffix field is locked and they won't let us put that there.

I know MBE's are used in the UK and don't know if they suffer the same issue or do it differently.

Marcia Rankin
Ethel May Hele nee Thomas
Known as May was my grandmother and she is buried in the West Terrace Cemetery Adelaide South Australia not Centennial Park Pasadena as is stated. She is buried along with her husband Arthur Harold Hele,her mother Matilda Nancy Allan - Thomas, nee Hewish and also I think her father Josiah Thomas. Path 22 plot 53W. In a message I placed on the website I omitted to put in Matilda Nancy's second married name of Allan.

Edward Thomas Kaine
Hello. I am part of a group researching the 390 names on the war memorial in Isleworth, London Borough of Hounslow. We have website if you would like to check us out.
Edward Thomas Kaine is one of the soldiers I am researching . Each of our soldiers has a Summary sheet with the biographical information we have found out and I wondered if you would allow us to use the photograph of Edward in his Summary sheet. We would be happy to send you an electronic copy of the Summary. The project is not-for-profit and we would not share the photograph with anyone without your permission.
I don't know how much you know about Edward, but he had a younger brother Charles Albert Richard who was killed in 1917 and is commemorated at Menin Gate. The youngest of Edward's brothers, George, survived WW1 (probably too young to serve) but was ironically killed by a bombing-raid in 1940.

William Alexander Wilson
Hi Nettlyne,
You have sent me an edit for William Wilson. I agree with most of it except the birth place. The records I have found in the past used to call Eaglehawk, Nerring (Loddon Shire, Greater Bendigo) not Nerring in the Pyrenees Shire. It has been very confusing and I know many people moved around in those days looking for gold but I tend to think that he may have been born around the Eaglehawk area and not in the Pyrenees Shire. If you google Nerring , county of Bendigo you can find some maps of the area with the surnames of property owners.
I am happy to make the changes but I need you to be aware that there are two 'Nerring's in Victoria
Regards Rose

Edward Jenkins is a relative of mine killed 22/27 July 1916. There is a photo of a cross near a barbwire fence inscribed to the 3rd Batt. I would like to know where this is if you know as we are going to the Western Front soon. Regard Peter

Maj Gerald Desmond MILLS
I am an assistant archivist for Felsted School and we are in the process of preparing a book for publication (to be sold via our webpage for Felstedians and public educational and research interest to order individually) and currently updating our webpage for all those who fell and fought in WWI & II.

We anticipate to produce the book for 18th November 2016.
I am requesting a copy of your photograph to add to our data. (Appropriately accredited of course). 

I can confirm that this is not a commercial-venture, and there will be no profit. Any surplus made will go straight back into the work of the archives, and particularly into our work on improving school and local community understanding of War Memorial matters.
I look forward to your reply upon this request. 

I await your reply

Kindest Regards

Jules Wallis, Assistant Archivist. Felsted School, Dunmow, Essex CM6 3JG

Hi there,
Charles James Anderson was my great Uncle. I have visited his grave twice over the years. I was wondering if you would be prepared to transfer this memorial to me. He is a special person in our family, even after so many years.

re: Martin Pianta
I have reasons for posting the info I did about Martin Pianta's birth year and death info. He is listed in Australian Birth records and several family trees on as having been born in 1890; if this info is incorrect I would appreciate something more specific. Concerning place of death: when I am entering info for war graves, I try to be as specific as I can for locations. It's obvious, of course, that he died in France, but it was Commonwealth War Graves Commission policy that soldiers be buried as close as possible to where they fell, so we can assume he died very close to Hargicourt, possibly in the town itself, certainly within the parameters of the location I specified. If I had access to the history of his unit I could be more certain, but I am satisfied that Department of the Aisne, Picardie region is accurate enough for Find A Grave's purposes.

Kennedy Woodstock
Just discovered your entry for Margaret Kennedy at Woodstock Cemetery. She was my 2nd great grandmother. I did visit this grave myself last year but was unable to read the inscription. Do you have a copy of the full inscription by any chance? I was going to look into having the headstone repaired but need the wording of the inscription to do so.
Kind Regards,
Phyllis Kallquist

Centennial Park Cemetery Information
Just a couple of tips before you request pics from Centennial Park Cemetery Adelaide. When you look up the person on the Cemetery Website looking for the grave site and none is shown you need to click on the persons name. This opens another page and down the right hand side you will see information. More than likely the person has been cremated and only a date is shown. In this case the ashes were more than likely given to family at the time via the Funeral Parlor. On other occasions the person has been cremated and buried within the cemetery however the site has been surrended and the ashes removed. In both these instances there will be no map location and no pic will be available. This is information available to you. By doing this there will be no need to request pics as none exist. Today I sent back 7 of your requests for these reasons. Hope this helps. Larry
