I come from Kent & enjoy social history. A lot of people are often unable to visit their relatives; perhaps they are disabled or don't drive so I put up the photos.|
My 'patch' is West Kent & London. I like to record as many as I can but I also like 'interesting' ones.
Sometimes it is great getting a message from someone to learn about the person's story and their part in history.

it is some time we've been to that cemetery but try to turn right after enetering the cemetery and walk along the wall (you can see it in the grave photo).
You can always check with the cemetery office - their telephone number is availbale on the front cemetery page.
Sorry for not being able to help better, wishing you luck.
Thought you might like a note from the grandson of Frederick Charrington's right-hand man and successor to the superintendency of the Tower Hamlets Mission.
My maternal grandfather Sydney Thomas Goodger (1872-1941) was a shellac and indigo merchant in the City of London. He worked with Charrington for about 30 years and then continued as Superintendent of the mission until his own death at the height of the Blitz on London, just days before the Great Assembly Hall was destroyed.
The inscription on Frederick Charrington's grave was composed by my grandmother Georgiana (Ena) Goodger, née Hunt. The sentence "At the last the question will not be What have you said for me but what have you done for me?" was a quotation from Charrington himself in a private conversation with my grandfather, who reported it afterwards to my grandmother.
These details came from conversations between my grandmother and myself before her death in 1968.
They also appear in my grandmother's scrapbooks, now in the possession of cousins.
My grandparents are buried in an unmarked grave (number 11773) close to that of Charrington.
Thank you for sponsoring the memorial!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
