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

RE: Private James Alexander Burley, Grangegorman Military Cemetery, Dublin
Hello John, Thanks for the photo of Pte.Burley's Headstone which completes the four men of The Royal Berkshire Regiment who lie in the Grangegorman Cemetery. I see you have taken photo's of all four and also the Berks man on the memorial, Pte.BEALE.
There are only six men who served in The Royal Berks Commemorated or Buried in Ireland and the final one is Pte.J.Conway who lies in KILBELAN (ST. CONLETH'S) CEMETERY which I have a request out for.
My wife is of Irish stock, her mother was a Toher and her father was a Carden,(Mayo and Sligo) but have yet to start tracking down any descendants in the way of a family tree.
Once again thanks again for all your efforts.

Dale Mooney
More information
Hello John,

I am interested in Hughie "Bill" Mooney i have noticed you added. He was my dads uncle and my dad did not know a lot about his dad and has no idea if he has relatives on that side who are still around.

Can you give me any more information about relatives of Hughie who sorted the grave out and so on?

Any help would be amazing!

Page Lawrence Dickinson

Hello John,

Thanks for all your efforts. Did you do the Redford Cemetery based on a transcript of the cemetery records or on an actual visit? I'm looking for the wife of Page Lawrence, Joan Creagh, daughter of Augustine Fitzgerald Creagh and Diana Elizabeth Fitzgerald. I figure she must be there too since her husband and parents were buried there, but the only other Joans I find there don't match up at all. Joan Dickinson, née Creagh, was born c. 1882.
