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

Frank Vaughan (RMS Leinster) 1918. f-a-g ref #157512763
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.

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
