|Bio and Links|
|I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I did, once, venture across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.|
Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

|Tim Asquith||St John the Evangelist Hildenborough Church|
Iain could please place this on the above site.
St John the Evangelist Hildenborough Church now has the full burial records available on Find a Grave up to the date of 2015. These records have been taken from the church burial lists and gravestones, gaining permission from Tim Saiet the local vicar and the Diocese of Rochester. The records which are available hold 4200 citizen of Hildenborough.
The intention is to make these records available at the public library in Hildenborough on opening days in Riding Lane, near to the church. The book has the plans of the plots of the church burial areas and information about interesting persons buried within the churchyard. Such as the Tibet Princess, Baroness and the first vicar of Hildenborough.
Regards Tim Asquith.
It has taken me 10 months to complete this little project.

Thank you Iain for offering your assistance photographing family memorials, possibly this summer. We are gathering lot numbers and estimated GPS locations to assist in this process, all of which will be posted on family memorials as they are updated in anticipation of your visit.
We are very grateful for your kind thoughtfulness during this month of May, the "Month of Mary." ~ Paul

I wondered if it would be OK with you if I used your images of the grave on my (non-commercial) family history blog to write about Christina and her husband?
|Paul Ring||Edgar Shelley Memorial|
Many blessings for your kind and thoughtful additions to the lives of people around the world! The Shelleys and their descendants thank you very much! - Paul

I have another friend who has found and reported many errors on Find a Grave for information provided by the CWGC.
Good Luck in your endeavors.

Thank you for taking the photo of my great grandfathers head stone. I remember visiting his grave when I was 6 years old with my mother father sister nan and grampa (Ellis son) I'm now 31 and it still looks like exactly how I remember it. I hope to return back there sometime this year to pay my respects once again. I have so many photos of the cemetery that i would be happy to upload. Kind regards Lucy

|Steven M||RE: Anthony Handkinson|
Here is what I could find at the moment;
Anthony Handkinson is listed on the CWGC website, but under "Greece", not Phaleron War Cemetery (I have no idea why). The only personal information listed states that he was the son of Richard Handkinson.
"Tony" and a New Zealand soldier named John "Jack" Stuart (memorial #56553524) where taken prisoner in Greece on 28 July 1942. Both of them where executed at Averoff Prison in Athens on 7 February 1943.
The latter information is listed on the Special Forces Roll of Honour website.
