Bio and Links
Bio Photo West Norwood Cemetery (WNC) is over 40 acres and some parts are covered in brambles and completely inaccessible. Ivy covered memorials 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 graves 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 any one of the memorials I have created, and then selecting 'Suggest any other correction or addition'.

Please don't write in ALL CAPS. I won't strain my eyes trying to read it. All lower case is ok.

RE: HARRIETT JOHNSON
hi, yeahh was dissapointed, the request for ALEXNADER JOHNSON is the husband of the HARRIETT im after, i added the cemetrey as i thought the harriett was mine, and that they would have been burried at same place, but have no proof!!! What makes it funny, is that he was a UNDERTAKER??? Im wondering now that the death i have for harriett maybe for your harriett not mine!

HARRIETT JOHNSON
HI, I think the foto is not the correct HARRIETT JOHNSON, her husbands name was ALEXANDER JOHNSON, the stone gives husband as a SAMUEL.The death doc i found may well have been for this lady if you found that plot number, as on Find A Grave memorial?? If so, pls let me know for sure, as i need to remove it from the memorial, my HARIETT WAS 66 at death. I had got so excited when i saw it, but must be wrong one, can you remove the foto sorry.

RE: Ridings photo
Wow....If you have the time...no rush...I would like the bit about Ridings...No idea of the "aunt" nor a family member dying in Nigeria! The hunt is on! Never know what you'll find.

RE: Isaiah Martin
Thanks for the picture of the path -that will help. I dont see the harm in leaving the photo. I do have some cousins who still live in the London area that may also benefit from it.
