BULLOCKHow to add someoneHi, How do I add a grave to the churchyard of St Mary the virgin, Wooton-uner-edge, Gloucestershire. The graves of Paul W Bullock 1825 1873 and his wife Julia are there, but there is no record of it on this website. The stone is quite badly flaked and was hard to read 5 years ago, on my last visit. So it may just have been passed over. Regards Tom Carter

NEWMARCHMissing gravestoneHi, I am looking for the gravestone of William Newmarch. He was the son of William and Catherine Newmarch (I’ve requested a photo of their grave). He died in 1887 before his parents aged 26 and according to the burial records was buried by the same vicar yet I cannot see a gravestone. Could this be because it is there but illegible? I live in New Zealand so cannot come and hunt! Many thanks Margaret

HOATHRe: Finding grave.Just wondering if you could help with the following query? I am trying to find out where my aunt and her husband are buried. My aunt's name was Mary Hoath (her maiden name was Mary Hegarty). Her husband's name was Henry Hoath - and he was also known as Harry. They lived at 69, Mortimer Crescent, Worcester Park, Surrey, England. Mary died in 1964, Henry died in 1968. I presume they are buried somewhere in Surrey. Henry was originally from Croydon - don't know if they might have been buried there? I really appreciate any help or advice you can give as to how I would go about finding their grave. Many thanks, Jane

WOOKEYseeking connection between surnamesI hold a prayer book dedicated in 1842 to Mrs Wickham with The Rev G. T. Hudson Kind Regards March 1842. Inside the prayer book are original letters (1838, 1840, 1841) addressed to Ann Wookey, Rudge, West Harptree, Old Down (Letters are from Rev. George Ireland and his wife Mrs Sarah Ireland). I am trying to find why my G-Grandfather J.T.A.

MARSDENAnnLooking for the grave stone of Ann Marsden, died 1844, buried at St Elphins church in Warrington. Many of the old grave stones were saved and placed around the church as walkways. I would be so grateful if someone could find her stone and take a photo of it! Her son William was also buried there in 1847. He may be on her stone or have his own stone. Ann's husband was William Leak Marsden. I am in the USA so thank you to anyone who can help.

HOPE. Finding location of my aunt's grave.Just wondering if you could help me? I am trying to find the location of my aunt's grave. Her maiden name was Mary Hegarty. Her married name was Mary Hope. Her husband's first name was Harry. Mary died in 1963. Harry died a few years later. I would really love to know where they are buried. They lived in Surrey, England. Part of their address was Worcester Park so I think maybe the grave yard might be in that vicinity....but not sure of this. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!

GILDERSLEEVESStanley Gildersleeves - Looking for some informationI have reason to believe that Stanley Gildersleeves is my grandfather. My mother's family emigrated from England to Canada around 1927. My grandmother would be around the same age as Stanley. My father reported upon my mother's death that her father was Stanley Gildersleeves. My mother's family name was Chiverton and she did not know her father and this information was unknown to her children till she passed. Any background on Stanley and his family would be greatly appreciated.

ATKINSONWetherby Kirk Deighton Ancestors - ATKINSON AND FARRERI am a direct descendant of George Atkinson of Wetherby/Kirk Deighton. My descendant was church warden (1805-1807)of All Saints in Kirk Deighton and is buried, as is his wife (Elizabeth Farrer), in the All Saints cemetery. He died in 1822. He lived on High St. in Wetherby in the house between the Red Lion Inn and Crown Inns. His father-in-law, William Farrer, was innkeeper of the Crown Inn and is also buried in the All Saints cemetery. George Atkinson's son (also George) purchased the home on High St. during the sale of Wetherby in 1824. I have birth, marriage, and death records but would love to know if there are any other specific church records relating to the Atkinson-Farrer families. George Atkinson owned for a while a freehold (90 acres) just southeast of Kirk Deighton in the early 1800s.

BROOKESWilliam Richard Brookes, memorial inside the churchThanks for this site, it solved the mystery death date and burial of Eleanor Brookes! I wonder if there are any photographs of memorials inside the church as I have seen a list of names which contains both Eleanor and her father William Richard Brookes on that list. It was posted noting it as the index to the Mural, Monuments & Memorials inside the Church. I also wonder if WR's gravesite is somewhere in the St Nicholas churchyard? I do not see it listed.

AUGIERAUGIER/GOTENDORF photo requestHi. I have some burial records from JewishGen and they're related to a family already photographed here, but they themselves aren't even listed anywhere in the cemetery. I'm wondering if you take photos by request and if you'd be willing to help... it's in the 24th division of Montparnasse: Emile Augier, wife Isabelle nee Gotendorf, son Jean, and anybody else around them who seems attached. Isabelle is the daughter of Josephine and James Nathan Gotendorf already photographed, so they may be nearby, but I'm not sure.
