|John||Robert Roberts (died 14 June 1900)|
Thank you Richard.
That is definitely the gravestone I was looking for. I'm surprised I missed it; it's pretty prominent. I went around the whole cemetery.
Robert's wife was Sarah, and John and Mary Lydia were two of his children.
The strange thing is that his death certificate and the local newspapers recorded his death as 14th June 1900, not 14th July 1900, as recorded on the stone. A stonemason's mistake perhaps and, as the stone was supposedly sent from South Africa by a relative, not one easily changed by carving a new stone.

Thank you Richard for finding and taking the wonderful photos of my ancestors grave. It was so informative to me in my research. ,
Before both of my marriages I was a Lawson by birth, and a Liverpudlian, living there until I left to complete my education. I now live in Cornwall, married to a Cornishman.
I can't tell you just how appreciative I am that you must have travelled a fair distance to search for my ancestor's grave. The cemetery looks nice and tranquil,
Thank you once again,
|Patricia Hosking||Thank you from|

Hi there thank so much for taking the time to find and photograph his headstone. Looks like you might have had to uncover it. I'm also wondering if you saw his Wifes headstone--Irene Humphreys. I know I have about 5 more requests still for this cemetery. I did really like seeing the photos of the grave site. It gave me a feel for what it looks like.

Thanks for the photographs. It seems like the marker has been replaced sometime after the other photograph was taken.

I've placed requests for two Belgian WWI soldiers;
*Joseph Verbeke (#133936859)
*Philemon Van Beveren (#133936841)
After a bit of searching, I discovered both of them where buried in the same grave, which is likely located in Section K (grave 3018?).
An image (not mine) of the grave marker can be found here; http://www.ablhistoryforum.be/viewtopic.php?t=2676
Hopefully this helps in your search.

Would you happen to have taken any photographs of graves at this cemetery on your last visit?
