Anthony Devlin 1877-1918
Many, many thanks David for the excellent photos of the Anthony Devlin memorials at Carlisle Cemetery.
If you are a Cumberland News reader you may or will have spotted the letter from Major Ian D.Martyn in last weeks CN 5th February. A New Zealander trying to reunite Anthony Devlin's Boer War Medal (found in New Zealand) with a surviving ancestor.
The CN printed my letter this week,(Letters to the Editor p.13) which mentions a little bit of Anthony's life history. Letters to the Editor have to be submitted by Tuesday lunchtime each week so you can assume further progress has been made ...... a present day ancestor has been found with the surname Graham. Ian D.Martyn is just awaiting documented proof of his relationship.
If a satisfactory conclusion is made Ian will be writing to the CN again at some time in the near future. I've sent for Anthony's Death Certificate which will arrive shortly. Regards, Trevor Jones

RE: Eleanor Armstrong headstone
Hi David
Eleanor was the daughter of Charles Wood and Eleanor Herring. Both parents seem to have been deceased by the 1841 census.
Most of the family remained in Carlisle their entire lives, and I am sure many are buried in that cemetery.
The tragic suicide of Eleanor Wood and William Armstrong's son, William, resulted in son William's daughter, my grandmother, being sent to Canada with the British Home Children's Waifs and Strays. I am a Canadian now living in the Tampa, Florida area.
The MI confirming that Eleanor's husband William Armstrong is indeed interred in Haltwhistle, was the icing on the cake. Sadly, after 20 years trying to find his origins, I am still stumped.
I would love to find the headstone of Eleanor's parents. I believe this could be them, both listed within the Carlisle Richardson Street cemetery, on the same stone, as;
WOOD, Charles Interred at St Cuthbertís
WOOD, Eleanor Interred at St Cuthbertís
I am not sure what the St Cuthbert's means. Maybe the older parish cemetery within Richardson Street cemetery? My next step will have to be going through the LDS St. Cuthbert film.
So, if your offer to help stands, this would be my next headstone request.

Eleanor Armstrong headstone
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking and posting the cemetery and headstone pictures of my great great grandmother, Eleanor Armstrong. I am truly moved by your generosity. Not only does the inscription confirm it is her, but also confirms the burial location of her husband. Amazing! Again, thank you so much.

RE: Robert Coulthard
Hi David,

Thanks for contacting me and again having a look for Roberts gravestone. Not sure who John Tiffin Coulthard was, probably just a coincidence that he is buried so close. But thanksyou anyway!!!

All the best
