RE: Links
Where would we be without rules!

My reply:

Everyone would be doing just what they wanted to do with the website.

I understand "why" you did the links but, at the same time, Find A Grave doesn't want them.

I have seen many time a copy and paste from Wikipedia and stating the source at the end....even Find A Grave has done that on a few Famous memorials.

Now you know. Don't remember the name on the memorial now to tell you.

Thank you!
Thank you for all the work on the cemeteries in Ireland.

I see that you posted outside links in some of your bios.

Just want you know what the guidelines say about that:

"Links to other websites or email addresses are not allowed within any memorial."

Hello John, I was delighted to see your post for Cornelius Murphy. He and his wife Ellen are my 3rd Great Grandparents. Their tombstone appears to be in the shape of a shield. Do you know what it may have signified? Also might you be able to tell me who would be the local genealogist in that area? I am planning my first trip to Ireland in April 2017 and would love to know more about my family. Cheers, Judy

Find A Grave Memorial# 162007387
I assure you I have no problem whatsoever with the photo you added-indeed I fully support it, but you should know that findagrave have introduced a rule that photos of memorials which are not in the cemetery where the deceased is interred, are no longer permitted. Consequently, those I have added of a family grave, for example, on which a soldier son buried elsewhere is remembered, are being deleted. They are even doing this on memorials in the famous category.

Please just send any edits through the edit on each memorial. Much more efficient for me than through emails. TY

RMS Leinster
Hello John, my great grandfather Leslie Robert Southam was killed on the RMS Leinster. Thank you for your page and photo of the memorial. I hope to get there one day! It has been recorded that his body was never found - I am not sure if that is true - but I have found an obituary saying his body was sent back to Birmingham where it was cremated and then he was buried in Brandswood Cemetery in Birmingham. I have already set up a Find a Grave page - would you mind linking it on your site in case any other relatives are searching in the future. Find A Grave Ref: 158313520
Thanks again - I found the information very interesting. Jo

Hi John,

Would you consider giving credit to the Bomber County Aviation Resource? This site is devoted to recording All Things Aviation in Lincolnshire.

I've created the above memorial page, with a photo of his wife's grave in Wallasey, Wirral, which carries a memorial to him. I see from your 'RMS Leinster list off casualties' that he has no grave or memorial listed and the CWGC don't have him on their records for some reason.

RE: William Greenwood
That looks great - thanks for sharing!

RE: Lance Corporal William Greenwood
I have transferred him to your care, so that you can update his memorial as you find new information. Sad on the explosion that took his life! Please let me know if I have any other war-time memorials that you would like to maintain and I would be happy to transfer them to you...

Thank you so much John for the photos of this grave. You've filled a big gap in my family tree!
James is my G-G-grandfather and I never thought to look for him in a military cemetery.

Dear John - The photo you took of the gravesite of Kathleen, her husband Patrick Joseph Doyle, and their daughter Suniva, has such sharp quality. Thank you for all your work. I have submitted information regarding the gravesites of Kathleen's parents headstone in Galway. Also, the date of Kathleen and Patrick's wedding.
All the best, Marsha Hale

RE: Herbert Carroll
Hi John

Sorry for taking so long to reply. It was my sister who spotted the message. Yes, my Father Herbert (Bert) and his brother William (Bill) both went to the Royal Hibernian. Bill wound up in India as a boy soldier. We are not quite sure how long my father stayed in the RHMS but I think he stayed a bit longer than normal to continue his education. At some stage after that he was in the Free State Army No 1 Band and played the french horn.

Keep up the good work!

All the best
