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.

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.

Banks Agar
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 :)

RE: Norman Collier
Dear Stephen

Just to say if you do happen to go looking he is buried in the cemetery in Common Lane, Welton not in the churchyard.

Hi Stephen,

I wonder if you might consider transferring management of the four Shearing memorial pages (John #149033844, Martha Ann #104334990, Annie #104334987 and Mary Elizabeth #104334991) all in Mount Tabor cemetery, to me. John and Marth Ann are my great great grandparents. Annie is their graddaughter, while Mary Elizabeth was John's second wife.

Thank you for your great work!

Thank you adding the burial record for Benjamin to his FindaGrave Memorial. Even though there is no marker on his grave it is wonderful to have this information for our family records.
Your time and effort is VERY MUCH appreciated by our family!

William Arthur Widdowson
Hi Stephen,

I have created separate memorials for the parents for William Arthur Widdowson (127212905).

They are Walter Widdowson (138182219) and Annie Elizabeth Widdowson nee Smith (138182277). I would be grateful if you could link William Arthur to them.

Also, William Arthur was born in 1922 in Worksop.
