Bio and Links
Bio Photo July 2015, am recovering from surgery.

West Norwood Cemetery (WNC) is over 40 acres and some parts are covered in brambles and completely inaccessible. Ivy covered monuments can be seen sticking up through the undergrowth here and there.

Lambeth Council has an online database of re-used graves in West Norwood Cemetery. If you find your ancestors on this website, there will be no sign of their grave in the cemetery, and any grave marker on the plot will belong to the new owner.

I strive for accuracy but am not infallible. Corrections and additional information are welcome. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial in question.

For all other matters, I can be contacted by using the 'Edit' tab on this memorial, and then selecting 'Suggest any other correction or addition'.

Please respect the efforts of photo volunteers and do not steal photos. Most people will give permission if asked.

I will not strain my eyes trying to read anything written in ALL CAPS (which equates to shouting). If the shift key is problematic, all lower case is preferable.

Most questions will be answered by reading the FAQ, aka Help With Findagrave. Further clarification can be obtained by asking questions in the Findagrave Forums.

Re: Richard Denman
Hello again 'caryatid'

Following on from my message of thanks for the edit you kindly sent me I have had a look at your list of Photo Requests in the hope I could return the favour and have 'claimed' your request for Richard Denman.

It has been some time since I created his Find A Grave page but, as far as I can remember, the reason why I did not photo the headstone at the time was because it was under trees with poor light and not in good condition. However, I shall be happy to take another look for you on my next visit in the hope I am able to complete your request.

Regards, David
Teddington, Middlesex, England

Re: Robert Collis
Many thanks for the grave location details of the grave of Robert Collis which I have just accepted.
He was a family member of the two ladies who founded and gave their name to Collis School in Teddington, but was not buried in this area.
Your edit is very much appreciated.

RE: Mary Ann Chandler
Sorry. I do not have the death date. I took my burial information from the burial register. Don.

Mary Ann Chandler
The person you have found in the burial register is the Mary Ann Chandler I have on Find A Grave. I do not understand how I had the date so wrong as the correct date (28 July 1898) is the one in my database. I have corrected my Find A Grave entry. Thanks. Don.

RE: Edits for George Kied (Keed) and Martha Underwood Keid
Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to get the plot info for the Kieds. That is sad. I don't know anything about 'common graves.' Their son, my 2G grandfather, came to America around 1851. I have yet to 'make the jump across the pond' in my genealogical searching. I appreciate what info you have given me.

I 'enjoy' helping others by volunteering to fulfill photo part because others have been so kind to fulfill some requests that I have made -- as you have.

Thank you again,

Edits for George Kied (Keed) and Martha Underwood Keid
Hello caryatid,

I see that you have two edits pending concerning plot numbers for George Kied (Keid) (#146328470) and his wife Martha Underwood Kied (Keid) (#46328591). I am thankful for the plot information...just wondering how you were able to get those numbers. I am in FL in the States...and have been trying to get pictures of their headstones (if they are available). The addition of the plot information should be invaluable.

Thank you, again,

Thank you so much for your informational updates for Sarah. She was the first wife of my g-grandfather William. Her two children, Sarah and Phillip are remembered and honored by me.

Again, thank you

RE: Lewis Glenton Kerr
Hi ! Thank you so much for this!
Thomas is the brother of my 2x-great grandfather Lewis Herbert Glenton-Kerr; and indeed the son of Lewis Glenton Kerr. I have a friend headed to West Norwood this week who claims to have located where the grave for Lewis (father) would be. I must have completely missed this grave for Thomas, thank you ever so much!

RE: New forums
Of course you weren't blacklisted, but I can understand having a touch of paranoia when you weren't allowed to register. I'm so glad you got the registration to work!

It seems that I've been kicked out of the Facebook Gravers' Lounge group, sometime between last night and just now.
