|Bio and Links|
|I am a North Londoner of Irish Protestant and Anglo-Indian (or, to be more accurate, Hiberno-Caledonian-Anglo-Dutch-Huguenot-Indian) parentage. I was trained as a mathematician but, at the moment, am working only part-time. I have travelled a lot; not only around the British Isles, but also throughout: Europe; Africa; America (North only; I have yet to cross the Rio Grande, never mind the Panama Canal, although I did, once, venture across the Forty-Ninth Parallel for a month, and should like to go back to Canada again, sometime); Asia; and Australia. Unfortunately, most of those voyages were undertaken before the invention of the digital camera, so I can't show you too many of the graves I saw when I was abroad. When I am not travelling or working, or painting or acting, I am learning to play the piano and various woodwind instruments. I try to keep my body fit with cycling and swimming and karate, as well as by never drinking alcohol, or smoking, or eating flesh, or fowl, or fish, and I try to keep my mind fit with chess and crosswords and reading.|
Please note; I am forever running around this world (as Jefferson Airplane once sang), and seldom check the computer when I am on my wanderings; but, if you write to me, I shall make sure that I answer on my return.

|Philip Townsend||Edward Bird|
I am not sure if you can help me, but there is a record (47997744) for the above in F-A-G with a death date of July 18, 1914 and it mentions in the notes that he had a wife, Elizabeth. The record was created by a member who is no longer active on F-A-G and there is no photo of the gravestone. In my family tree, I have a husband of a great grandaunt (Elizabeth Dyer) who was married to an Edward Bird. In my family tree, I have Edward Bird as having died in Ditchingham, Norfolk on July 13, 1914. I am wondering if this is my Edward Bird in that the death date was recorded incorrectly in F-A-G. Is there any way that you check on this. Thanks much!

|Robin Smith||find a grave at St. Peter and St Paul churchyard, Crosby.|
I have looked at your records for 'Smith' at St Peter and St Paul churchyard, Crosby, Liverpool and there is one Smith missing. Did you get your research from documents or a physical visit of the churchyard?
|DWilmer||Sir Patrick Robert Cadell|
I wonder if you have any information on the family/descendants of Sir Patrick Robert Cadell.
I have a connection to him, my great grandpa was his deputy when he was the Prime Minister of Junagadh State (a princely state in India) after his military service with British Indian army.
There are several mentions of Sir Cadell in my great grandpa' letters to his son. Apparently he was a great administrator and also had mentored my great grandpa and helped him quite a lot.
Any information will be useful and will be much appreciated.

|robin stocks||George Costello|
Well done for recording and preserving the inscription on the grave of George Costello in Stockport cemetery. Your background work is spot on. George was born in Dublin, sailed to New York on the Guy Mannering and served through the American Civil War. He was injured and received an american pension for most of the rest of his life. He moved to Stockport in about 1891. His grandson was born in Dublin in 1891. He also moved to Stockport and became one of the few men from the Manchester area who decided to travel to Dublin to fight in the 1916 easter Rising. We have been studying them and have set up a website and writen a book on their experiences. There is more info at
If anyone has anything to add to what we have discovered, we'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for all the grave pics!
Thanks for the photos you added-
Facing South-West, from Roman Road. Susan Peake is buried somewhere behind the trees at the back of this picture.
-it is likely that CWGC will erect a Special Memorial with words along the lines of 'Buried near this spot'
Thanks Iain-outstandingly fine photos! It's a long time since I have been to Islington and probably wouldn't get there again for many years.
