I believe you requested a photo of this headstone last year. I visited Bayeux last September and duly took the photo but unfortunately unforeseen circumstances on my return have prevented me from adding them to Find a Grave until now.
I see a photo has been taken for you but I hope you don't mind that I have added mine.
It seems a shame for you not to have a copy.

Hi Mark, thank you for commemorating this trooper, who I believe is a possible ancestor of mine.
My research so far shows the family at that time coming up to Worcestershire from Gloucestershire, then on to Liverpool. I believe that George was a baker by trade, and moved to London before joining the 11th Hussars.
However, the name here on memorial 58963303 is actually written as WOOTTON, not WOOTTEN the latter being the correct and quite distinctive spelling that has encouraged my research.
The "O" misspelling thing is something we "E"s have had to get used to, although my wife still finds it a challenge to spell our surname every time when booking hotels etc!
Please could you look into this for me.
thanks, and keep up the good work.

I read with interest your comments on the two Sipling brothers sadly killed in WW1. Whilst my own research into the Neall family led me to the same conclusion I do hope that you will not mind me pointing out a minor error in your additional information published on Find A Grave.
The mother of the two soldiers was indeed Ellen Neall the daughter of George and Damaris Neall, however she was in born in Brigg, Lincolnshire in about 1862 and not Yorkshire.
She can be followed through the census returns up until her marriage to Francis Sipling on 2 March 1880 but with a little difficulty due to the variations in the spelling of the families surname.

I found the Ball family plot in Southpark Section A instead of Block 1 where the office had told me they were located - I've added photos

Mr. Andrews, I am working on my wives family tree and I added a memorial for Emma Ethel Steadman maiden name Jones. To the Heckmondwyke Cemetery. After I posted the memorial I went to request a photo of her head stone and any other members of her family. There was no place to request it on find a grave. I am hoping you can help me out by getting those photos or know of someone who lives nearby that could do it. I believe her Parents fred Thomas Jones and Phoebe Jones maiden name Styles is also buried there.
Any assistance from you, I would be very grateful.

I received three SACs from you with the above surname but no other communication.
