I'LL Volunteer to get the photo.

-----------------------------
Hello All,
WEE talked me into this...and I've been having a great time taking headstone photos from France, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Easter Island, Saigon, Africa, Iceland, Greenland, and all over New England. Wherever I travel I check out the photo requests in that local Zip Code. Rather nice hobby that keeps me walking now that I am retired.

Please, Please, call the cemetery to get the burial plot.

Suggestions are appreciated.

DO NOT COPY ANYONE'S PHOTOS without asking for permission!!!

Bob

RE: Private Clifford Stopforth
Hi Bob - Its Heaton cemetery, Bolton, Greater Manchester. The largest cemetery in a large town.

As it happens I had a cheeky look myself and, like you, could see no other Stopforths. There are however 15 Stopforths in the Bolton phone directory.

From the birth, marriage and death register (see https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl -free search) one can see the wedding in 1894 of Thomas Stopforth and Alice Bailey in Bolton, and the births of Doris,1904 Elsie, 1912 James, 1910 and Clifford, 1918, all in Bolton. Doris Stopforth died unmarried in 1978. Elsie Stopforth became either Elsie Fox in 1934 or Elsie Harlow in 1941.

Your Welcome... I guess with transferred memorials,
you can't just delete them, hunh?
A merge might be best....

Sorry Bob I seem to have lost my photos from St Bridgets cemetery in Beckermet, I will have to go back some day and take some more to do a memorial for his mam and dad.

Regards Mike.

Good catch.

I often contribute to FindaGrave on the run, using my phone.

At some point i may have requested a transfer of the earlier posting, or Ms. Paine may have transferred on her own (some d0!). Either way, I have mgt of both, now, so I will be deleting the newer, less complete BU posting, as you imply. I have taken the time to notify both of the "flowerers", in case they want to leave another token on the remaining memorial. I will leave my posting up temporarily, in case they don't remember what I'm talking about (I, myself, can be amazingly forgetful, one of the reasons I enjoy Find A Grave so much.) Both flowerers have left many more tokens than they have participated in any other way, so they might need memory jogged a bit.

Thanks again, and thanks for all your other contributions to this site which fascinates, infuriates, and generally entertains me when I find the time.
