Bio and Links
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.

38590260 Col Thomas Prendergast Boles Walsh
Col Thomas Prendergast Boles Walsh; 38590260. Minor correction. Wording say "Rifle Brigade, fought with distinction at Waterloo." Waterloo was 1815 and Walsh I think was born in 1831. It was his father Rev J P Walsh of the Old 95th who was at Waterloo and wounded 3 times. I can try and get a bio for Thomas if you wish? His son, Langton Prendergast Walsh, wrote a book called "Under the flag : and Somali coast stories" and there are several references to his dad.

Thanks for the great work you are doing.

I am doing something similar in the North West. I am currently working on a project to research all the soldiers who fell in WW1 who lived in Mossley Lancs. I wondered if it would be ok to use the photo on Ben Ashcrofts grave to illustrate my work?

Once I have completed his story I will send the details through so you can update his Bio. I hope you will find the info interesting

Elizabeth Staunton
Hi,
The Elizabeth Staunton memorial at St Mary's Warwick has in Latin the following words which I translated to English as best I could so you could add it to her memorial page for future searchers.
I thought she might have been one of mine but after translating it wasn't her as my one's husband was John and they were from the late 1600's.

Latin
PIAE MEMORIAE
GULIELMI ET ELIZABETHAE STAUNTON
IN SEPULCHRO SUBTUS DORMIENTIUM
ILLE XXIX
DIE OCTOBRIS MDCCCXLVIII= 1848
ILLA XXX
DIE APRILIS MDCCCXXXIX = 1839
MORTAIEM CURSUM PERFGIT

translation English

Pious MEMORY
GULIELMI(William ?) and Elizabeth Staunton
In the grave below sleepers
He 29
Die October 1848 (Born approx 1819)
She 30
Die April 1839 (Born approx 1809)
Mortals Course completed.

Thanks
Peter

Hi JS
I am hoping this is your 'cemetery'.
If it is would you be able to write on the description, something like:

This church does not have a cemetery but there are several plaques in the church and a war memorial commemorating various people whose name appear in this cemetery.
So this cemetery contains mainly cenotaphs.
Thanks
Susan

Tracing grandmother
Hi, I saw you had posted a photo of my wife's grandfather's headstone, and I am trying to trace the location, in the same cemetery, of her Grandmother. His name is James Frederick Gilbert and hers is Mary Ann Elizabeth Gilbert. I know she is buried in St Paulinus as is he, and the Register entry number is 1206. If you have any information as to how I can trace her grave location, I would be very grateful. His location is row 15 grave 21. Thank you, Keith Brett

G E Skeats Pvt - Addlestone
I have a question about the headstone for G E Skeats headstone shown on the site from a photograph stated as submitted by JS - do you know any history of the stone? I ask as I was searching for George William Skeats Pvt - Died 5/2/1919. his army number was 331372 as per the British Army WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920 for George W Skeats. I'm wondering how I can find out why the headstone is G E Skeats as all other information is correct.
