|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 did, once, venture 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 smoking, or eating meat, 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.

Thank you for your wonderful photos of my Grandad Jennings Grave in Palestine. Apart from the original pictures of when he was buried, this is the first time I have seen it as it is now.
Would it be possible for you to remove one or two , maybe the gate and a long distance one please. I wanted to put a few pictures of Grandad on the site, but only 5 are allowed. Thank you again. You have made my day . We found this on 11.11.13.

Thanks for the photo of the grave of my great grandfather, Frederick James Andrews. Oddly I was in Dorchester the week before you and had a quick look round the Weymouth Avenue Cemetery, but didn't have the time to track him down. I have added his portrait (taken from his wedding photo) and a short biography.

Hi thanks for the photos and the links, the "Church Link" is the hyperlink text for linking churchyard so its only visible for me when I edit my profile. I need to change it so people don't think its a actual link.

Thank you very much Mr. MacFarlaine for your very thorough job of photo'ing and explaining Aunt Ida's final resting place.
As I was, I'm very certain the handful of kinfolk here in Canada that remember Miss Ida Krause will be very surprised when they see your excellent photo accomplishments.
Best Wishes from DG Bender (#47380620)

This brought tears to my eyes to see the headstone. This person is a 2nd cousin twice removed but the sad story of his life is moving. William's father died aged 31, his Mother died the previous year. With the assistance of Sister Mary McKillop(now an Australian Saint)his Aunt, Sister Gertrude Hayman took William and his brother to the St Joseph's Boys home at Kincumber. William was aged 6, his brother Geoffrey 7. Our family did not know of this happening or their whereabouts until recently. Many many thanks for adding a little more to our family history.
I very much appreciate your willingness to share your photo with others. I will certainly add a photo credit for you.
I'd love to have a copy of the larger version of your Astwood photo, even if I decide to use the smaller one on the tree.
I'll send you an invitation to the tree as soon as I get a minute.
Right now I'm so busy I don't know if I've found a rope or lost a horse.
I forgot to mention that of course I would credit you as the photographer.

I'd appreciate your permission to use your photo of Astwood Road Cemetery, Worcester, England on my Ancestry family tree. Thank you.
