Pte.Charles William Tilbury
Hi, I'm sorry not to get back to you sooner and thank you for taking the photo of Pte.Tilbury's name on the Mikra Memorial. I have been on holiday in Belgium & France for the past two weeks doing my own batch of Find-A-Grave photos....Regards, John

Re: William Albert Arends
Thank you so much for the headstone photo. William payed the ultimate price for his country and the photo truly completes his memorial.

Edgar Emptage Request at Brockley/Ladywell
Hi, As there's already a photo there, I guess you're asking for a higher resolution closeup to read the inscription. Regrettably, since that photo was taken in 2011, the vegetation in that area hasn't been kept under control, and the headstone is now virtually covered in ivy with only a few words visible. Fortunately, I have a photo I took in 2012 in which the ivy had only just started growing, and I have fulfilled the request with that pro tem, though it's not as good quality as I would normally hope to get.

The cemetery staff and/or friends' organisation seem to have occasional blitzes on the aforementioned vegetation, including ivy, but as they haven't done anything about the Emptage stone yet, I've now taken it upon myself to snip it at its roots at the front (I couldn't get behind where most of it seems to be growing from). As you'll know, pulling it off would damage the stone, so all we can now do is wait for it to die and fall off, which may take quite a while, though it's started to wilt. I'll keep an eye on the situation and replace my closeup when I can.

This is what I make of the inscription. Perhaps you could check it, and then I'll SAC it to the memorials.

In loving memory of
Jane Lydia
Beloved wife of
James Wordsworth Emptage
Died July 9th 1909,
in her 67th year.
"Abide with me."

Also the above
James Wordsworth Emptage

in his 64th year.
"At rest."

Edgar Henry Emptage
Beloved son of the above
Late 11th Royal Sussex Regt.
Died September 6th 1920, aged 39.

James W. Emptage
Eldest son of the above
Died April 6th 1928, aged 56 years.

There are some other Emptage graves nearby, which I've added, but from your Find A Grave name, I guess you're only interested in military ones.
