Bio and Links
After studying my own family tree, I started the Daglish One-Name Study.

A One-Name Study researches the origins and distribution of a name, as well as all persons with that surname, and any variants.

One-Name Studies can often provide useful information to others with interests in the name. You can see a list of registered One-Name Studies at the Guild of One-Name Studies website.

As part of my research I often visit graveyards and cemeteries and have begun to take an interest in memorials with other surnames, typically the less common names and often those studied by fellow members of the Guild of One-Name Studies.

I am not so interested in the graves of famous people - rather those of "ordinary" people whose lives are remembered.

David Leonard Oakenfold
Dear Daglish,

Just a quick note to say thank you for posting the photo of the headstone for David Leonard Oakenfold. He was the husband of my Mum's oldest sister and I am named after him. I have added a photo of him in uniform to his Find-a-Grave page.

RE: Borough Cemetery
possibly something to do with old burial records? I have 2 that have different things written on them but suspect the same cemetery.

Whitton & Hounslow or hounslow heath may have been merged into this one or were once called something else maybe?

Parish or Poor Law Union: Hounslow Heath
Borough: Hounslow
Register Type: Parish Register

Parish or Poor Law Union: Whitton St Philip and St James
Borough: Richmond upon Thames
Register Type: Parish Register

William Hick and Sarah Jane Couper
Thank you so much for your quick response and for transferring management of these two entries to my husband and I. I have just updated their birth dates and tim is leaving flowers for them. Thank you again! And when I have the chance I will pay find a grave and sponsor these entries as well. Thanks again for your work!

William Hick and Sarah Jane Couper
Hi and thank you for posting grave of William Hick and Sarah Jane Couper. They are my great grandparents in law and I am working on their family tree for my husband and his dad. I have added two photos for Sarah and William from the Couper family album. I also added Sarah's correct birthday on her photo caption. I was wondering if my husband and I could take sponsorship or ownership of these entries as they are our great grandparents? Also, I have birth and death info as well as photos for all their children and grandchildren etc and could add new Couper entries. Many Coupers are buried at Wandsworth as they were primarily from the battersea and Wandsworth areas. Please advise, would be very grateful.

I am a Daglish descendant and am very interested in whether or not you might have any information on my line. I haven't been able to find much which is surprising due to the unusual name compared to Smith or Jones lol. My line is myself, my mother, Margaret Daglish b. 1942 Indianapolis, In (she was adopted by her paternal grandmother and name changed to Toppe); her father, Robert J. Daglish Sr born Indianapolis about 1917; his father, Raymond H. Daglish born in Marion Co., Indiana; his father, Francis J. "Frank" Daglish born Ontario; his father, John Daglish born England. I look forward to hearing from you!

RE: Alexander Bell Filson
In that case transfer seems appropriate as I and my 2 sisters are next of kin.

Alexander Bell Filson
Thank you for putting on record the gravestone of my great-uncle Alexander Bell Filson. I'm wondering if you picked this particular gravestone to record knowing of the terrible tragedy that lay behind his and his 3 children's sudden death in January 1927.
