RE: #106817549 and others
I think all of us that do genealogy can get confused at times but it's so intriguing and addicting. I enjoy walking cemeteries, taking pictures and adding them to find a grave. If it helps someone find and learn something about an ancestor all the better. Thank you for the acknowledgment of my efforts. Bonnie

RE: #106817549 and others
Oops, I meant Grace Hannaford, I've done so much searching that I got mixed up. As I said I did not create her memorial please contact the person who did. Bonnie

RE: #106817549 and others
You have a lot of good information but I did not create the memorial for Elizabeth Hannaford so cannot make any edits. You will have to contact the person who created her memorial.
Sorry I couldn't help, Bonnie

RE: Edwin T Hayne
Many thanks to you and the Castle Bromwich volunteers.

I am a bit surprised Edwin does not have a CWGC-stone. He is listed in their database after all.

Hi John
Thank you for your message. I have linked John to his parents for you.
I live near St Michael's and I have photographed
nearly all the old graves and about 3/4 of the newer ones. I will be starting on St Minver Churchyard soon and there may be some of your relatives there.

You might be able to go into forum and delete the request if its not too late.

RE: Coleshill, Warwickshire Cemetery
You wanted my opinion on unmarked graves. I think they should be listed as being in a particular graveyard/cemetery but exact position unknown. Not right to ignore burial just because they are not marked.

Also please note that I have managed to merge the two Handsworth cemeteries, and fixed a few other anomalies..
I have spent the last year in St.Mary's, Acocks Green. Although a smallish parish church over 800 graves are now identified. Currently working on Church of the Ascension, Hall Green.

Be aware that St Peter & St Paul churchyard and Coleshill cemetery are two separate entities, though they are adjacent to each other.
Coleshill Cemetery is operated and maintained by the local council, the other by the church. I have a full MI list for St P&P and was working my way through it.

You are welcome. The photo is not very good because it really needed sunshine as you can see in one of the pics. I will try to get a better one so check the memorial periodically. Right now it is 18 degrees in Brielle so it won't be today.

RE: Ancestry
Find A Grave has indeed been sold to Ancestry. The founder stated that he could no longer maintain the site, and needed serious professional help. He also made a statement that it will continue to be available free. However other free sites swallowed up by Ancestry became subscription sites within a few years. Some long standing major contributors have quit. . .

RE: Davison's
The two Handsworth lists are completely separate. Last time I checked there were no duplicates.

RE: Davison's
St Matthews is wrongly titled - my fault. It should actually be St.Matthews, Nechells. In error I entered the original parish from more than 100 years ago.
If you ever have any dealings with Handsworth Cemetery be aware that there are currently two of them in the system. Have given up telling Find A Grave admin about it.

Never mind John, I'll photograph your grave and see that it is kept clean!

RE: Photo uploads
Tell me about it! I've got a backlog of over 2,000 (Well I've been ill lately!). It's not doing my already poor eyesight any good either. Will hopefully have them done by the end of the year.

RE: Curdwoth Cemetery
Thanks for the reply. I don't mind how many additions you send, and I'll gladly add them to the memorials. Curdworth was the first "mass photography" project I did for Find A Grave. I'm not a family researcher, really just a volunteer photographer. My memory of Curdworth is that in the older parts the memorials were in a very degraded state (hence some of my errors in transcribing 5's 6's and 8's). My pet project is Yardley cemetery, where I am working through the sections 1-60 systematically. I currently have about 1,000 photos to upload - and I have only done three sections!
Fortunately my 10 year old Minolta has a pre-focus anti shake feature that works superbly. May I suggest you adopt a sturdy stance (one leg behind the other), and hold your breath whilst shooting. This often overcomes the shortcomings of a small lens camera. People tend to be obsessed with megapixel size these days, but lens quality and diameter is far more important. Anything over 5 megapixel is not needed for anyone other that professional architectural photographers.
I too am now retired and live in east Birmingham. Maybe we could meet up sometime to compare notes?

I have now added all the family links. Apologies for the omissions, they could and should have been done when the memorial was created a year or so ago.

Did you take this pic?
Has anyone added the full reading of the stone? can it all be read?

Stoke Climsland Cemetery
Just wanted to say thank you for all the headstones and info you have posted from this cemetery. I am a Rapson descendant and have been able to find the headstones of many of my ancestors on this site.
Also descended from John Phillips from St Endellion in Cornwall. Wondered if he was connected to your Philp family
