|SWITHENBANK||Nab Wood Cemetery, Shipley, Yorks||Nab Wood is quite a large cemetery. Is there any information available for the graves there please?||19/05/2017||7684|
|PARSONS / FIFOOT / BEDELL||Parsons Family including Bedell and Fifoot relations||Their message:
Dr James St John Parsons is my paternal to maternal great grandfather. The others are his family and therefore great Aunt's / cousins etc to me.
I am undertaking research into the Florance and Parsons family.
I would also therefore very much appreciate copies of the memorials for:
1] John Benjamin Bedell 1971 (not a cousin to Dr Parsons but a grandson. Both a cousin and husband to Alice Hazel Bedell.
2] Alice Hazel Gage Bedell 1984 (not a cousin to Dr Parsons but a grand daughter. Both a cousin and wife to Benjamin Bedell.
3] Gertrude Gage Parsons 1961
4] Alice McLearn Fifoot 1940
5] Edith Maude Bedell 1952
6] Elizabeth Parsons 1908 (?)(I think this person is meant to be James Parsons (jnr) wife who died in Celyon. Her name in a 'Will' is Margaret but may of course be known as Elizabeth. She didn't die in Celyon.
7] James Parsons 1908
8]Elizabeth Gage Parsons 1920
If I may gently point out I have corrected the relationships in brackets. Of course if your information is correct according to the memorials this raises important questions.
Very many thanks indeed in anticipation for your assistance. Your work is a wonderful resource for researchers. thank you. James (Jim Florance)

|CAMP||Naomi Louise Camp, Burial||I'm trying to locate the grave of my cousin, Naomi Louise Camp. She was
born prematurely 12 Sep 1960 in the Royal Air Force Sculthorpe base
hospital, weighing only 1 lb 8 ozs. baby Naomi only lived for 2 hrs. Per
my late Aunt, her mother, she was buried in the church cemetery on the Lord
Townshend Estate, close to Raynham and not too far from Fakenham, England.
Per index records, she was born and died in District: Fakenham, County:
I cannot find an estate by this name but I am finding the Raynham Estate and
Raynham Hall. I've also found that the Church of St Mary is on the estate
so am wondering if the church cemetery may be where baby Naomi was buried.
Can you help me locate her burial? If possible, I would love to have a
picture of her grave and headstone. Many thanks for any help you can
|MORRIS AND SMITHKIRTLINGTON P||Gravestones||I am wondering whether any work has been done photographing Oxford cemeteries, Kirtlington in particular. My Gt.Grandmother, Emily Morris came to New Zealand in the early 1870s, and research has shown that there were a considerable number of Morris family members in the Kirtlington Parsh records, also a generation back to the John Smith family.
Thank you for the great help you provide.

There are at least two Edward Sparkhalls around at the same time in the same area (Norfolk), so care needs to be observed. I know quite a lot about the family, so any others with information or request will be welcome. It is not a very common name.
I would like to express appreciation to Charles Sale for his excellent website and his speedy response when photos are requested.||19/03/2017||7232|

|PRIESTLEY||FABULOUS WEBSITE||Thank you, thank you, thank you. When you live in Oz it is just great to locate a picture of the headstone of some of my late mother's distant relatives whom she knew virtually zilch about. I am trying to find descendants of Ferdinand and Alice (nee Denton) Priestley. Alice was a daughter of Joseph Denton and Mary Walsh and my mother was a descendant of Joe's youngest brother Thomas Peter Denton who migrated to Australia in the 1880's. I know Ferdinand and Alice had four sons and a daughter and that the eldest son, James, wrote to my mother back in the 1960's. She kept one of his letters. Would very much like to make contact with descendants of Peter Denton and Mary Allen.||30/01/2017||6968|

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I am in search of the cemetery/headstones for Frederick & Laura (Chapman) Mercer. Frederick would be a son and grandson to Joseph and Ambrose Mercer (grave ID 529962). He was born around 1858 in Cranbrook and possibly died in 1941 in Croyden, but cannot say for sure that this is the correct death date or place. Can anyone help me?||25/01/2017||6939|

|WHITECHESTER||Information on Whitechester surname linked to Scotland and Lithuania||I have found information about the Whitechester name in Scotland connected to the Scott clan and the name Buccleigh. In a Pennsylvania death record in 1935 for Anthony Whitechester, my grandfather, his father, Thomas Whitechester, is listed as an immigrant from Lithuania. Thomas and Agnes Whitechester's four children were born in Pennsylvania in the USA according to their marriage licenses. There is a reference in Wikipedia to some land in Lithuania owned by the Buccleighs that they lost when Russia took over Lithuania. Does anyone have any information about the Whitechester name in Scotland or Lithuania? I haven't been able to find information prior to 1920 on Ancestry and Google about that last name. Thank you.||28/11/2016||6700|

|CALVERT||Terracotta gravestones||Thanks for the useful photo supplied of a Torin grave.He was a relative of Mary Seton Watts who started the Compton Pottery. My main research is into the location of terracotta gravestones made near Guildford by Compton Pottery 1900-1950. They are either brick colour or grey, usually Celtic designs or crosses and usually not very large. Sometimes just a moulded kerb with names inscribed. Lettering is cut into the terracotta before firing or is sometimes left standing with a cut-away background. Most are in a 20 mile radius of Guildford but they were supplied in sections by rail and individual examples turn up throughout UK. I could send sample pictures and would be so grateful for a photo from anyone who comes across one in their researches. ||03/09/2016||6341|

|DORNAN||Pumpherston Oil Tank Disaster||An extremely useful and user-friendly site.
Iam researching a branch of the Thomson family in the Scorttisg Borders. My earliest confirmed dates are the 1790s with Gideon Thomson in Eddleston, marrying firdt Elizabeth Dickson, who presumably died in childbirth, and later Margaret Hope with whom he had four sons and a daughter, Margaret. She married into the Wilkie family and in the 1930s a Wilkie was the second husnaband of Mary Dornan, marrying by declaration in Edinburgh, hence my interest in the Dornans. The Wilkie, a chartered surveyor died 1959sh, in Dumfries. I can find no subsequent ecord of Mary's death in Scotland. I would appreciate any help in this matter.
|HART||Location help please||Thank you for the recent requested image, however it turns out not to be the the relative I am searching for.

I have the birth and death certificate but desperatley want to find her final resting place.
If anybody has any information or can suggest where to start looking I would really appreciate it.
Many many thanks

|HESTER & WORLEY||Date correction||Could I ask you to make a correction to the estimated dates (given in red) that accompany the image of the gravestone of one of my ancestors?
This concerns Elizabeth Hester: grave number 54312, image no. 226. Her estimated date of birth (in red) is given as 1812, but should in fact be 1842. I'm sure the reason for this is interpreting her age at death on the gravestone as 89, whereas it actually reads 59.
I am quite sure about this, especially as a date of birth of 1812 would have meant that her youngest child would have been born when she was 66 years old (rather than 36)!!||01/08/2016||6202|
|CALVETTI||Brompton Cemetery & St Pancras Cemetery||Hello, I would love if someone would be able to send me a picture of the gravestone for Giovanni Calvetti who is buried in Brompton Cemetery (register lists M 145... not sure if that is the number of the plot).

Since this has been transferred to Ancestry.com, a search there links to those burials, but further search doesn not include any of them.

|RUDKIN||Charles Iliffe Rudkin||Many Thanks for the photo link. Unfortunately the subject is a little out of focus - if you have another image and could send it would be great.
I think the service you offer really does help researchers link a few reference numbers with an actual person. I am sure that for some researchers overseas this is invaluable to provide a tangible link.
Many thanks for the service, which I will look to use again. Shame about the image though.||23/06/2016||5974|
|THOMPSON||Did Elizabeth died before she married???||Firstly, many thanks for the photo Charles. The information on it is however curious. The Henry data fits my ancestor exactly, as does his first wife Mary Jane (preferred to be mostly known as just Jane). Problem is with second wife Elizabeth. The headstone gives her death as 7 Oct 1891 but the only marriage registration I can find, anywhere, between a fitting Henry and an Elizabeth (maiden name unknown) was in Dec quarter 1891 ref Stockton 10a 69. Any ideas anyone??||23/06/2016||5977|
