RE: Curdwoth Cemetery
Thanks for the reply. I don't mind how many additions you send, and I'll gladly add them to the memorials. Curdworth was the first "mass photography" project I did for Find A Grave. I'm not a family researcher, really just a volunteer photographer. My memory of Curdworth is that in the older parts the memorials were in a very degraded state (hence some of my errors in transcribing 5's 6's and 8's). My pet project is Yardley cemetery, where I am working through the sections 1-60 systematically. I currently have about 1,000 photos to upload - and I have only done three sections!
Fortunately my 10 year old Minolta has a pre-focus anti shake feature that works superbly. May I suggest you adopt a sturdy stance (one leg behind the other), and hold your breath whilst shooting. This often overcomes the shortcomings of a small lens camera. People tend to be obsessed with megapixel size these days, but lens quality and diameter is far more important. Anything over 5 megapixel is not needed for anyone other that professional architectural photographers.
I too am now retired and live in east Birmingham. Maybe we could meet up sometime to compare notes?

I have now added all the family links. Apologies for the omissions, they could and should have been done when the memorial was created a year or so ago.

Stoke Climsland Cemetery
Just wanted to say thank you for all the headstones and info you have posted from this cemetery. I am a Rapson descendant and have been able to find the headstones of many of my ancestors on this site.
Also descended from John Phillips from St Endellion in Cornwall. Wondered if he was connected to your Philp family

I can't copy & paste the long note in your new-style SAC, send as an "other info" SAC or as e-mail
