A quick thank you for all the photos you have provided for Oxfordshire... My ancestors were all over the Cherwell district and yours is becoming a familiar name as I create more entries for them.
Thanking you from Canada :)

OK-I was going by the Military History sheet I added but I agree these are invariably inaccurate
|Sharon Collins||RE: Walpole-- Old Chiswick Cemetery|
I was probably right by it yesterday as I was not looking for a large grave marker just a normal one. I can see Jane on the marker but not Isabella. Next time I go I will see if I can find it, which should be easy with the fence around it, and take photos of the other names.
|Sharon Collins||Walpole-- Old Chiswick Cemetery|
I tried to locate Walpoles in the Old Chiswick Cemetery today but had no luck. Do you have any idea of the plot location?
|Iain MacFarlaine||RE: Neil!|
Thank you for deleting this, as well as the photograph from Eastbourne.
I have just changed Horley to Hopley and added the other things you mentioned. If you find out anything more, do let me know.
All the best,
I was just looking through my iPhoto, when I found the pictures of Neil (not Niel) Baillie Hamilton in Muizenberg, so I uploaded them.
Almost as soon as I had done so, I realised that I had made an entry for him myself. Admittedly you did so a year before I did, but I travelled 8,258 miles just to see him.
So, for the second time to-day, if you want to delete yours.....
|Iain MacFarlaine||Private Merriam in Eastbourne - or is it?|
The day before yesterday, I was in Eastbourne, so of course I went to Ocklynge Cemetery. I had only about half an hour to spare before my train returned to London, but I found the grave for which I was looking, which was that of Aleister Crowley's mother, although I don't think he'd have approved of the inscription she chose for herself. It so happens that she is buried next to some Canadian soldiers from the First World War, so I photographed those, too, before running back to the station. There are a few more (non-military) people who are buried there and who are quite well-known, but I didn't have the time to locate them, so I may return next year.
I have just been adding these Canadians to Find a Grave, and I found that you had got there before me with Private C. Merriam (No. 33192190).
However, the badge on the photograph you took is not the Maple Leaf which one might expect, but that of the York and Lancaster Regiment. The inscription on your picture is not at all clear; but, after I screwed up my eyes and gazed at it for some time, I could just about make out the words "York & Lancs" beneath the name of the casualty. I couldn't make out his name at all, but it looks as though it might be Captain Mark Webb or something similar, except that there isn't anybody called that there. Presumably he was too busy swimming the English Channel. *
If, as I suspect, you have added the wrong picture, it might be a good idea to delete this and to send Captain Webb, or whoever he is, to his rightful resting place.
Incidentally, I have just had a quick look at your Wants list, and am reasonably confident that I have some of the graves in India and South Africa. However, they are going to be on a disc languishing at the back of my cupboard. I'll have a look for you sometime, though.
All the best,
* Yes, I know that he was named after a different Evangelist.
|Geoff Wild||Blandford Forum -one or two name discrepancies|
May I complement you on all the work you’ve put into cataloguing the war graves in Blandford Forum Cemetery in Dorset which I visited a couple of days ago.
As Find A Grave search results rely on the precise spelling of names I hope you will not mind me mentioning the following discrepancies:
Capt Briggs headstone inscribed Captain G T W Brigg
Max Heintz headstone inscribed Max Heinitz
Robert Mitchenson headstone inscribed R Mitchinson
Willy Lindermann headstone inscribed Willy Lindemann
Edward Alan Studden headstone inscribed Edward John Studden
|darealjolo||RE: Francis Le Grew Harrison|
OK-but his birth was registered as just Harrison with Le G as one of his middle names, though I agree that civil registrations are not always reliable.
|Halfpenny||Ernest Walter Marsh|
Thanks for trying! Andrea
