Bio Photo Stephen Farnell Born in Halifax West Yorkshire.

I have done research on my family tree and now share the experience with those who may be interested. I have added a number of graves to Find A Grave which may help others in the future. My family roots stem from the Farnell family and the Attwood family and my wife's from the Ward and Soakell family and the families therefore attached to these. My interests also are of the Military, as I'm an ex-service man myself. Should I come across a Military grave not on Find A Grave I will add it for the interest of others. It is not my intention to offend anyone but to preserve the memories of our fallen and the resting place of the dead.
Weather and the elements, and vandalism can cause loss of graves and monuments and so lost for ever. Here at least they are preserved for the viewing of anyone interested.

I can be contacted by email at.
stephenandjayne@hotmail.com

Any queries on living people are private and should be respected as such.

Any queries on the deaths or burials of my additions I will try to help.

Hello Stephen
I was researching the above RAF Sgt who is buried locally to me in Plymyard cemetery Wirral and saw that you had recorded another member of his crew Sgt Arthur Marshall ( # 115104611) who is buried in Todmorden. (They died in the mid air collision of two Halifax's over Soroby, Tiree).
I also contribute to a site with the self explanatory name :- aircrewremembered.com
and wondered if it would be OK for them to use your photo from Todmorden (with acknowledgement to yourself).
Regards - Mike

Whitehaven Cemetery
Hello from Canada. I noticed you took the general photo of the Whitehaven Cemetery. Are you by any chance a nearby resident that fulfills volunteer photo requests??

Are you related to the Agar family, or where you just kind enough to take the photo of his stone (Memorial 126096073)?

I've just recently discovered that he is my 4th cousin 3x removed through his grandmother Sarah Banks.

My whole tree of Banks ancestors originated in York :)
