183637James Alfred PycroftJames Alfred PYCROFT's wife was Olive S(arah) as per the first part of this gravestone inscription. Therefore I believe the second named person should be Olive Sarah and not June Sarah. The firstname of the second person buried (the also of) is unclear on the gravestone but I believe the first letter can be made out as O (rather than J). The date of death of this second person appears to be Jan 5th 196[6?]. According to the National Probate Calendar, Olive Sarah PYCROFT of Nightingale Cottage, Dilham, Nfk died 5 January 1966. Therefore I believe this second person is Olive Sarah PYCROFT, the wife of James Alfred PYCROFT. Many thanks for all your work on this resource.2019092920191002
