Daniel Eckersley
hi again,
all i know is Daniel Eckersley senior died in 1919 so if he and his wife arent on the gravestone im wondering if they might both be buried nearby - so ill see , might come accross it sometime but the thorns are very overgrown round there

Peter , i took a picture of this grave the other day but (and then realised you had already done one - how you managed it as i was in five foot grass in that area - also the stone doesnt appear to be leaning now maybe they mended it ?) i cant read the bottom of the stone and its very overgrown , Do you know what is says on the bottom of the stone as im putting the parents on - your picture has less thorny growth but i cant enlarge from here - thanks Andrea - also would you like me to add my pic to the memorial as well (i think they are allowed five in total ) - its not as clear as your but its got a bit more colour on it

yes Peter that sound good, can you ask that it be transferred to you as you need to update it and do a few edits to it ? If you want you can also say hes a cousin (of mine 3x removed)

James Slinger/Robinson
hi Peter,

Thanks for your time on this and e mail,not sure how we can do that memorial with both names on but in the meantime , i have e mailed the international wargraves who created the original under Slinger with details of the problem , however they say they get a lot of edits and dont reply to e mails as they get so many , so ive sent in in edit form as well , im not sure if they will process it though as I had to put ALL his details in an e mail and his story is a little complicated, and was hoping they might come up with somthing

I dont know how to put both names onto one memorial though and didnt know if that were possible - but ill see what they come up with. Another thing I might do it to ask them if they will transfer the Slinger memorial in Sanctury wood to you and then you can edit and put a link into it but keep both memorials on if we cant put 2 last names on (as the only was I think we can do it is with a maiden name ?)

What do you think?

RE: pvt james
What a run around this solder had me do today !! not only did he add FOUR YEARS to his age to make hismef 21 when he was only just turned 17 - but he changed his name as his mum had re married to someone else so he was using his stepfathers name which is Slinger - so he registered under THAT name (not Robinson !!)
his memorial is here - 12731151

RE: pvt james
hi again sorry forgot to mention , i THINK James lied about his age on the sign up papers as he added a couple of years on so his memorial at Belgium MIGHT have a differernt age , i have checked Sanctuary wood in Belgium and hes not been put in there so maybe you migth like to also transfer the memorial to that cemetry /but he was defo born 1897 and died aged 18

Peter, I was looking at my family tree as i have a lot of Higsons in the tree and ive found that James Robinsons grandparents James Higson and Elizabeth (nee Macdonald) lived on junction rd is my 3x cousin , they had three daughters so one of them must have married a Robinson, their names are Mary A, Jane A and Sarah E, so one of these is James Robinsons mother , i was excited to find that he was part of my tree but im finding a lot of the graves i find at Deane are some relative (some at a stretch), so not sure if that will help at all - i ill try to get more detail on his parents. I dont have free accress ot ancestry at the moment so cant get the 1911 census until i got to library so ill ask some one to do me a look up
