Bio and Links
Bio Photo Willing to attempt photo requests within the West Midlands County UK. (includes former parts of Warwickshire, Worcestershire & Staffordshire & including Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton etc.).

Note I no longer add memorial inscriptions unless specifically requested to do so, as it is too time consuming. Photos are usually of sufficient quality to make inscriptions readable when enlarged. They should enlarge to at least A4 size before pixelating. I do however make every effort to enter FAG family links where available, and include inscriptions stating family links not shown elsewhere. I also state age at death if shown.
I use a rebuilt Minolta A1 or A2 camera, occasionally employing a flood flash & a few other tricks to highlight detail on badly stained memorials.

Curdwoth Cemetery
Hello Dafydd,

Thank you for doing those. I feel I should warn you though that I'm working through compiling a listing for Curdworth compiled from PR Burials and found on site when visiting. I have added some memorials and photos to the listing on Find A Grave, and have recently took more. Issue is my digital camera is not up to the standard you employ and some of the shots are to be honest poor quality, blurred etc. But, at least there is a photo better than none! So I'll add those once the listing is added.
The intent is to 'bulk load' from an Excel file created from my 'master list', but minus those memorials already entered.
I have in the past added to Find A Grave Family Members at Curdworth (some still to be located grave wise). So to move forwards I'm first looking at those already entered and been researching the names listed each via Free BMD and the Warwickshire BMD Parish Records. Hence my update messages.
There will be more requiring additions, linkings or corrections perhaps, are you happy to have these come to you as I work through them? I don't wish to load you with work because of my project, unless you are happy to make these additions!

Witton Cemetery
Thank you Dafydd for photographing Witton Cemetery in Warwickshire. It has been a great help to find the photo of Frederick Ratliff's grave site because it supplied me with a burial date and location. Hopefully I can now fill in a few more blanks in my family tree. Your efforts are appreciated! :)

Thomas and Mary Ann Willson's Plot
Hello again, I was wondering the next time you go to the Key Hill Cemetery would you please transcribe what the plot says? I am having trouble reading what it says. I would really appreciate it.

Thank you very much!

Maria Ann Morse
Hello, Maria was my 2nd great grand aunt. May I ask how you know she is at Birmingham Crematorium? I would love to connect her with her parents and add some information if you would please transfer ownership to me. Thank you very much!
