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.

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.

Military Matters
You seem like someone who knows about military 'stuff' hence a help request. I think this person 136873759 is military but I have no idea what S.A.C. means. Do you?

Differing dates
Sgt. Leslie Wall. 110808472

The 'official' marker states date of death as 1st Feb. A family plot nearby has the date as 31st Jan, bit of a quandry. I have added both photos but will remove one or both at your request. Must admit the photo of the 'official' marker is not very good.

BTW there is a duplicate of this memorial but the manager has disabled messages - admin have been informed.
