I am part of a project to research the history, "residents" and eventually to record all inscriptions in Gravesend Cemetery, Kent. I am happy to take photo requests for this cemetery as I am a frequent visitor there. I am always interested to hear from anyone with any information about interesting people buried there, (they certainly don't have to be "famous"!)

I am always willing to transfer ownership of my memorials to relatives.

Would you mind transcribing what is on the headstone. I can't enlarge it enough to be able to read it. Or email a copy to me at

Many thanks

Jane Goodchild Craig # 48042348
Thank You, js, for transferring management of Jane's memorial to me. I have already connected her to parents, siblings and first husband, and am working on her children. This makes a lovely extension for my Jackson family line. I will also add Rev John Craig, her 2nd husband to Find A Grave and then connect connect them. He was Vicar of All Saints Church, Leamington-Priors, Warwickshire, 1839 - 1877, and a fascinating man. Though he was not connected to Gravesend, you might find his story interesting;

Thanks again for your support.

Jane Goodchild Craig # 48042348
Hi js,
Jane G. Craig is my 1st and 2nd cousin, 5 times removed. She is the 3rd daughter of the Rev. William Jackson, memorial #153828222, and Harriet Williams. She was also the 3rd wife of Rev. John CRAIG, 30 years vicar of All Saints, Leamington Priors who was buried July 5th 1877, and memorialized in the North Transcept (in recess). I have been working on connecting the Jackson family and would like to connect her to her parents, first husband Samuel Percival, and their children. Would you be willing to transfer management of her memorial to me? I really appreciate that you created a memorial for her, which made it easy to find another family connection.
Thank you. Anne

Hi js,

l was wondering about you memorial to Rev Radcliffe, you have him listed as being buried in St Helen's Churchyard, Ashby del la Zouch, Leics. He was vicar there but burial records for St Nicholas' Church, Kenilworth, Warks, say he was buried there on 1 Sept 1832. There is also a memorial to him inside that church. He actually died in Leamington.

l was about to do a memorial to him myself, then l came across yours. Would you mind if l gave you some information to add to the Rev's memorial?

Hi I am a local history researcher in Leigh-on-Sea Essex - see my website The mother of JOhn Frederick Ginnett and he himself were born in Leigh (Lea on the memorial is an incorrect spelling). You will see I have a page about the family on the website and I would love to have a picture of John Frederick to go with it as he was born here.

The website is not for profit and I would of course give full accreditation. Would it be possible to use the photo.

Kind regards

John Ripsher
John Ripsher, of Tottenham fame was a cousin of mine (5 X removed). I write a blog and each Thursday I do a blog post about one of my ancestors. I would like to use the photo of his grave and the photo of him that you submitted to this site. It's a personal blog and I get no payment or reward for writing it. I do it because I like to. Would that be ok?

Lord Clifton Peter S. Bligh
Hi I'm doing some research on the Battle of Assche, May 1940. Peter S. Bligh was 4th troop commander A Squadron 15th/19th Hussars and fought in the battle and was captured. See the following link for some info on his and other 15/19 members actionsin the battle.

If you happen to have any other sources of info on PS Bligh let me know as I just have some general info about him

Cheers Steve
