Bio and Links
I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I have been to the States quite a few times and once ventured across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol or coffee, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.

Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

Hey Iain,

May I use your cemetery photos for Robert's F.A.G. memorial and entry in my family tree? He is my wife's uncle.

Thank you!

St John the Evangelist Hildenborough Church
Iain could please place this on the above site.

St John the Evangelist Hildenborough Church now has the full burial records available on Find a Grave up to the date of 2015. These records have been taken from the church burial lists and gravestones, gaining permission from Tim Saiet the local vicar and the Diocese of Rochester. The records which are available hold 4200 citizen of Hildenborough.
The intention is to make these records available at the public library in Hildenborough on opening days in Riding Lane, near to the church. The book has the plans of the plots of the church burial areas and information about interesting persons buried within the churchyard. Such as the Tibet Princess, Baroness and the first vicar of Hildenborough.

Regards Tim Asquith.

It has taken me 10 months to complete this little project.

Thank you Iain for offering your assistance photographing family memorials, possibly this summer. We are gathering lot numbers and estimated GPS locations to assist in this process, all of which will be posted on family memorials as they are updated in anticipation of your visit.

We are very grateful for your kind thoughtfulness during this month of May, the "Month of Mary." ~ Paul

RE: Mainwaring grave Brodighera, Italy
Hi Iain

I wondered if it would be OK with you if I used your images of the grave on my (non-commercial) family history blog to write about Christina and her husband?

RE: Jones the Aircraftman
Hi Iain,

Good Luck in your endeavors.
