Bio and Links
Bio Photo West Norwood Cemetery (WNC) is over 40 acres and some parts are covered in brambles and completely inaccessible. Ivy covered monuments can be seen sticking up through the undergrowth here and there.

Lambeth Council has an online database of re-used graves in West Norwood Cemetery. If you find your ancestors on this website, there will be no sign of their grave in the cemetery, and any grave marker on the plot will belong to the new owner.

I strive for accuracy but am not infallible. Corrections and additional information are welcome. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial in question.

For all other matters, I can be contacted by using the 'Edit' tab on this memorial, and then selecting 'Suggest any other correction or addition'.

Please respect the efforts of photo volunteers and do not steal photos. Most people will give permission if asked.

Writing in ALL CAPS equates to shouting, and is harder to read. If the shift key is problematic, all lower case is preferable.

Most questions will be answered by reading the FAQ, aka Help With Findagrave. Further clarification can be obtained by asking questions in the Findagrave Forums.

I wish to thank you for sending me the photo of Seth Clark. As I live in Western Australia it is not possible for me to do it myself.
So thanks again,

Nancy .

RE: Rev Mackenzie at West Norwood
They lived in the rectory with an address in Ilfracombe. Does that help?

Just realized you are the same person who created the memorial!

All I have is the info on the 1901 census, listing the community in Devon. Hope that's what you wanted.

His widow Elsie married my grandmother's brother after she moved to Washington State.

Thank you for the photographs - glad there was enough left to see!

Would it be permissible to add them to our Ancestry tree - with a credit line?

And thanks for the tremendous number of memorials you have added to Find A Grave - so greatly appreciated.

RE: Walter Leslie Gauss
Thanks, I'd just seen the messages triggered by the transfers. Ideally each graveyard needs to be photographed systematically - I took a trowel and brush when I did these so uncovered the hidden names.

Thanks for suggestions. I was new to the site and had been a bit reluctant to edit someone else's entries. I've now added my extras to your two entries (for Annie and Leslie) and deleted the two I'd created. Apologies for messing things up!

Sorry to have ended up duplicating your entries for Walter Leslie Gauss and Annie Elizabeth Gauss (my grandmother). I was entering the father and his second and third wives, none of whom had been entered, and also photos of the graves, including the one of Walter Leslie's and Annie's grave, and their full dates of birth and links to her parents, but couldn't see how to do it without duplicating these two entries. Unless you could copy the extra details and photo to your entries it might be easier for you to delete them in this particular instance.
