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 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.

Writing in ALL CAPS equates to shouting, and is harder to read. 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.

Coombes & Vincent
Hi, I have sent a few edits for the related families above and noticed that since your own visit the Puddletown, there is a new burial in the same plot - KATHLEEN MAY COOMBES d May 2015.

I have added a memorial page for her, but am unsure of her relationship, so have not linked her to her relatives. You may wish to do that?

If you would like me to transfer her page to you, please let me know.

I am researching the Boston family tree.
I am trying to find where an ancestor possibly traveled by ship to the United States back in the 1600s. Would you happen to have any suggestions for ships registries?
Thank you,
Vince Boston

HI again. looks like I may be able to personally visit my grandfathers grave. Can you tell me how to find the site within West Norwood? Thanks, Mike Rowland

I wish to thank you for sending me the photo of Seth Clark. As I live in Western Australia it is not possible for me to do it myself.
So thanks again,

Nancy .

RE: Rev Mackenzie at West Norwood
They lived in the rectory with an address in Ilfracombe. Does that help?

Just realized you are the same person who created the memorial!

All I have is the info on the 1901 census, listing the community in Devon. Hope that's what you wanted.

His widow Elsie married my grandmother's brother after she moved to Washington State.

Thank you for the photographs - glad there was enough left to see!

Would it be permissible to add them to our Ancestry tree - with a credit line?

And thanks for the tremendous number of memorials you have added to Find A Grave - so greatly appreciated.

RE: Walter Leslie Gauss
Thanks, I'd just seen the messages triggered by the transfers. Ideally each graveyard needs to be photographed systematically - I took a trowel and brush when I did these so uncovered the hidden names.
