Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and brought up in Wales but now live in Lincoln England. I started genealogy in 2002 and now have my family back to 18c. I stumbled across this site whilst tracing American relatives and found lots of help and information.
Through the findagrave forum I'm involved in projects to leave flowers on all memorials that don't currently have any, please don't assume I'm a relative because I left a flower or sponsored a memorial and please don't transfer without asking.

Please make yourself aware of the Frequently Asked Questions - Site Rules. Note the naming section with instructions for use on memorials #147. (Prefixes & Suffixes in the name fields are not allowed and mess up the search engine from working properly.) This site covers World Wide cemetery and burial information, some choices offered for Prefixes and Suffixes (Prefixes/Suffixes/Military Information)#148 might not match exactly your countries customs. The last name field should not be left empty as the search engine requires a query by last name. Other characters like *, --, (), {}, ~, ..., ?, "" or numerals, are not allowed in the name fields as they are not recognized by the search engine making the name un-searchable. Maiden names are automatically italicized. The naming rules (not Guidelines) exist for good reasons. LOTS of good reasons. Titles of any kind are not allowed in any name field. Within the new Edit system if you get a request with "Unknown" in RED within a field, then that field would be empty. (It will not put the word Unknown in that field.)

Joseph Hewson - Canwick Road Cemetery
Thank you for pointing out I had placed Joseph's memorial in the wrong Canwick Road Cemetery. I have now corrected that mistake.

Edmund Penn Correction
You mentioned that my photo and memorial to Edmund Penn was a duplicate of a prior memorial. The reason for this is that the original memorial you mentioned was listed under Edgefield Cemetery. This site shows 11 internments. The correct name for this cemetery is Edgefield Village Cemetery. That site holds almost 1000 internments and that is where I posted my photo and memorial. If you want I will remove my memorial duplicate but anyone looking for his memorial at Edgefield Village Cemetery will not be able to find it there unless the one from Edgefield Cemetery site is moved. Please let me know.
Thank you

RE: Sir Donald Sinden
Oh, it doesn't matter about that - if they need to take the sponsorship down that is fine, all that I ever wanted was some recognition for him as the very fine (and famous!) actor that he was.

Lovely to hear from you again Daff, and I hope that all is well with you,

Warmest wishes,

RE: Sir Donald Sinden
Hello Daff,

I contacted Find a Grave again and they have kindly made Sir Donald Sinden's grave 'famous'.

I thought that you would like to know as it was you who added him in the first place.

Such good news - recognition for a very fine actor which is most gratifying,

Thank you so much for the flowers, they're greatly appreciated.

RE: Barnard Castle photo requests
You are welcome. Actually, Sergeant Chapman was the most difficult to find because it wasn't a standard CWGC headstone and there are two entrances to the cemetery.

I have added family for three of them, and put in EDIT requests for them to be linked. When this happens depends on the person managing the memorials.

Thank you for your comment re the above. I am not familiar with the area of Lincoln. The information was taken from a) Freereg and b) Findmypast. So I am assuming that it is only a 'burial service' at the church and as you state buried in the main cemetery. I will amend my records online and off accordingly. Once again thank you for bringing this to my attention.

RE: Huetson Memorials
It is possible, The surname and area is the same area of my Huteson and Huetson. I am still researching. I am trying to connect three branches of Huteson/Huetson's together. It has been lost of how we are related through the years.
I will keep track of the memorial. It might help me somehow hopefully. Thank you for asking me :)

Thank You soo much for alerting me to that date issue on his memorial, I have corrected the dates. I submitted the memorials in that cemetery from a transcript (and then spreadsheet) and more than one of them created with crazy (and impossible) dates, despite the fact that I submitted them correctly. It is great people such as yourself who keep this website accurate. Your work is much appreciated. James
