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

Left click once - This will get a slightly larger photo. Click this enlarged photo and it will open in a separate window. Finally click this photo a third time and it will open to full size.

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 A3 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.

RE: Florence Geary (1865-1951)
My interest is actually in Florence Geary. She was the sister of Elizabeth Burke, who married the Earl of Fingall, and wrote a famous memoir called 'Seventy Years Young', which is considered to be one of the most important records of the Edwardian period in Irish history.

Florence & Elizabeth were born in a house called Danesfield in Moycullen, Co. Galway, Ireland, as was my 4x great grandmother. (The sisters were her grandnieces.)

I only learned of them when I started digging around in my family tree & was astonished to discover a castle dwelling countess among the branches.

RE: Florence Geary (1865-1951)
Hello again, Dafydd,

I went and had a look on Ancestry to see if I could open the record pertaining to Florence Mary Geary's burial, but I was unable to, on account of my subscription having expired.

However, I was able to obtain the information from the 'England, Select Deaths and Burials, 1538-1991' that she was buried in Harborne, Staffordshire, England and that the FHL Film # is 1520004. I don't know if this is of use to you?

I'm sure that I gleaned the information that she was buried in St Peters Churchyard from this record, when I did have a valid Ancestry subscription.

One detail I remember that rather surprised me, is that though she was buried in a Church of England churchyard, a Catholic priest officiated.

RE: Florence Geary
I found it in some sort of parish burial record. I can no longer open it, as my subscription to Ancertry has expired. I'll see if I can at least find out what record collection it's in.

RE: Florence Geary (1865-1951)
Thank you, Dafydd.

It seems strange that there would be no marker, as she was quite well off.

Her husband was a baronet, and they lived in a big country house.

Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph her gravesite even though there was no stone. Your efforts are much appreciated.

Key Hill Cemetery (Sanders) and Warstone Lane Cemetery (Rosson).
Thanks very much for the photos. I appreciate that even though most of them did not have headstones you took photos anyway. It still seems to matter. Thanks again. Very best regards.

Greetings & a very big thank-you for pointing me in the right direction to place my 2nd Great Grandmother in the proper cemetery... I just re-edited the Cemetery Link from within her profile entity, as she already did not exist there... Now to find her Husband's Cemetery to link it in his profile entity...

Again, from across the Great Pond in Canada, Thank-You...
