I am very happy you are getting those photos. Interesting thing with that "bone chamber". Last time I was on Helgoland was in the mid 1980's, waaaaaaayyyyyy before my interest in cemeteries.

Many thanks for adding the photographs for the memorials in the Waldfriedhof Krieger-Ehrenhain. I have accepted the changes you requested to the dates and name spellings. There were some genuine transcription errors on my behalf but there are also some real discrepancies between the details given on the gravestone and those recorded on memorial cards and in official casualty lists. However, minor differences between the details in different sources are not that all uncommon for servicemen.

Thank you so much for the photo. It means a lot to me that you went out if your way to get it.

Have been doing some family history and found out I'm related to Hans Simon Braun. Trying to find any family on him. He died at Dachau in January 1941. He was born in January 1904. It was said that he was a photographer. I live in the U.S. so getting info is hard.
Please email me at: email@example.com

I am sorry you did not like the balloons. I did try to remove them, but the link you had in your post did not work properly. I finally found the memorial again by searching her name and found that the balloons had already been removed.

I'm trying to locate a relative over there and hopefully view her memorial page. Someone I know here in the U.S. had been to her grave last year but he didn't have a camera with him and never took a photo, so I know there's a grave and marker. If you know anyone close to that cemetery could you see if they would take the photo? Thank you very much and thank you for all you do for F.A.G. Al Holter

Thank you for the photos of their gravestones. Your time and efforts and talents are very much appreciated.
Those stones are beautiful. Ironic interruption of that one "reed".

Thanks for pointing out that the maiden name was on the marker. I had overlooked it. I always give my sources for anything I add that is not on the grave marker (for various reasons).

Dear Bob P,
Just a short note to thank you for your effort in taking the time to photograph the grave of my Uncle
(RAF)' who is interred in Hanover War Cemetery, Germany.
It is very much appreciated by myself and my family.

|Allan Mawson||RE: Personal thank you from my family|
I'd be interested to know if he is with all of his crew in that row or just two of them Bobp. And that would close the book as far as we are concerned. Maybe you'd be able to shed some light on that matter?.

|Allan Mawson||Personal thank you from my family|
Would like to thank Bobp for taking the time to take and send photos of my great uncles headstone at Hanover war cemetery also to know he is with some of his crew is comforting.
I'm currently not in a position through finances to go and visit personally so your photos have helped put the final piece of the jigsaw in place.
If I ever had the chance I'd certainly buy you a drink and personally thank you for your efforts.
Once again thank you so much from c.robinsons family.

I entered his name in Google inside quotation marks and it pulled up a book on Google's book page but it was in German. There was some sort of information on him on one of the pages. There was also another site which I just now looked at of people killed by being beheaded. There was a picture of him.

Do you have any further information regarding the grave listing for Valentine Fassnacht.
I just recently found the grave information

You are welcome BobP, glad to help with a photo request for you. I processed some F-A-G edits this weekend and realized one of them is on a HOWES memorial that you manage (check your 'Edit' tab). Small world; what a coincidence! Thanks, hope to cross paths again down the road....

|MBG||RE: James Major obit|
It can get tricky with records and gravestones, can't it? It's not uncommon for gravestones to have incorrect dates. Some stones were erected years after someone died so dates came from someone's memory or perhaps records incorrectly written or no longer legible. Below is the link to the newspaper account of James Major's death. The year of the newspaper is 1910 so I believe his death year is actually 1910 not 1912. The paper reports he was 80 which would make his birth year 1830.
Here is link to online death reference which shows death year as 1910 and approximates birth year as 1830.
Hope this helps. I like reading old obits to learn about someone's life especially so long ago.
