|Bio and Links|
|I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I have been to the States quite a few times and once ventured across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol or coffee, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.|
Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

|nansi White||Eric A White RWF Kohima Cemetery|
Though the White family had a citation from CWGC and a photo of the cemetery we have never had a photo of the grave of Eric A White. Today we found your photo. Thank you so much for helping to fill a small gap in the history of a Welshman who died so far away from home.
Eric and Nansi White and family
Happy New Year's:
In years to come, men will speak of this war and say, "I was a soldier," "I was a sailor," or "I was
a pilot." Others will say with equal pride, "I was a citizen of London."
Eric Sevareid, October 1940.
|Carol henderson||Pete Ham|
Please can you tell me when you took the photo of Pete Ham's headstone. The information is needed by his widow as they have asked me to take another photo, when in Wales. If the date is OK, it might save me a trip. Thanks
You suprise me, Iain! An Etta James fan who knows some Abbey Road lyrics? You're right of course, that it was McCartney's song, not Lennons.
Now that we have that out of the way, do you like Morrison's Carrickfergus?
I hear Etta James singing "At Last!"
Obviously, His father was admitted to the bar, and he was born at the Inn, not on the road, tho' John Lennon might have disagreed if he were still with us. By the way, his mother, Margaret's maiden name was Scott. (If you want me to show you my source, just forget I mentioned it.)
I cited the source below: the 1851 census
England and Wales Census, 1851
Frederic Cavell was born in 1824, in Gray's Inn, Middlesex. That is located in St. Pancras, Camden, London. That's the edit I requested, and the header that remains blank.
He was baptized in Holborn, also in Camden.
|Bernadette||RE: Re: Frederick Cavell|
If the information for the places of birth & death are available, they belong in the header. That's why F.A.G. placed those boxes there. The bio is for info that can't be placed in the header.
|Edward Nicholl||RE: Headstone Photos of Soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment|
Many thanks, Iain.
Apologies for getting your name wrong.
I am afraid that I understand the irritation this can cause, as I have a surname which is spelt every which way but loose (as the expression goes)!
There are 664 soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment buried in the UK. Of these 664, the website now has photos for 602 of the burials (which will be increased once I have your photos on line).
The cemeteries / headstones photos which this website has are shown on a spreadsheet which can be accessed from
The graves which haven't been photographed are shown on the spreadsheet by the rows not being coloured in.
If anybody else sees this reply and can help, we would be really grateful.
And, of course, I am really grateful for the use of your photos!
|Edward Nicholl||Headstone Photos of Soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment|
I run a website for the remembrance of soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment who fought and died in the First World War,
This website is entirely non-commercial.
You have several photos of the headstones on Yorkshire Regiment soldiers, including those in Beverley (St. Martin's) Cemetery and St. Mary's Churchyard, Rudston All Saints' Churchyard, and Twickenham Cemetery.
I would be very grateful if I can use these photos on the Yorkshire Regiment Remembrance website, with due credit to you and a link back to the Find a Grave website.
With best wishes
