|Chris Doran||RE: Requests at Bromley/London Road|
Sorry I didn't contact you soon enough to save you getting wet. I only looked at the cemetery's requests list just before leaving yesterday (Thursday) to give it another go. Having seen your claims I went and did some elsewhere instead. I generally don't claim myself until I'm back home with a photo ready to upload, as cemeteries round here have so many problems that even with a plot number and/or precise description, it often takes several visits over more than a fortnight to find the grave (or give up!). As there don't seem to be very many other gravers in the area, I didn't think this was inconveniencing anyone, but a few people are appearing now and I may have to review this policy.
|Chris Doran||Requests at Bromley/London Road|
Visiting Bromley regularly, I have already tried these with limited success.
Osborn isn't there. I found him at Plaistow at the M 152 plot there, for which there is already a good picture. I informed the requestor, but she hasn't removed the request. The situation seems to be that International Wargraves are plopping people at every cemetery in Bromley where the CWGC record isn't specific (or in some cases where it is!)
The same probably applies to Cox, as I haven't found many 1940s burials at London Road.
The Crooks are probably in an unmarked grave in the row immediately to the left of the gatehouse, extrapolating from the numbered new graves in that row (re-used graves appear to have an R prefix or suffix). I have been waiting to get back there with a paper flower to mark the spot. However, there is some confusion over the numbering system, as there is a small stone marked B11A in the corner away from that row. If you are there when the office is open (which I am unlikely to be), perhaps they can explain.
I have mowed most of the "easy" stones at London Road and other Bromley cemeteries and am awaiting time to upload them.
Good luck if you still want to try.
