Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist, living in Dublin, Ireland.

I am particularly interested in the Pigott and Edgeworth families of Ireland and their descendants.
The graves of Irishmen who fought in WW1 & WW2 are also of interest.

"Forget the dead you've left,
they will not follow you,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"
Taken from
"It's all over now, Baby Blue" - Bob Dylan.

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

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
