I am part of a project to research the history, "residents" and eventually to record all inscriptions in Gravesend Cemetery, Kent. I am happy to take photo requests for this cemetery as I am a frequent visitor there. I am always interested to hear from anyone with any information about interesting people buried there, (they certainly don't have to be "famous"!)

I am always willing to transfer ownership of my memorials to relatives.

Lord Clifton Peter S. Bligh
Hi I'm doing some research on the Battle of Assche, May 1940. Peter S. Bligh was 4th troop commander A Squadron 15th/19th Hussars and fought in the battle and was captured. See the following link for some info on his and other 15/19 members actionsin the battle.

If you happen to have any other sources of info on PS Bligh let me know as I just have some general info about him

Cheers Steve

George Beikl
I was hoping that you would help me with the unfortunate case of Georg Weikl.

I have just added a scan of a memorial card for Georg Weikl to the memorial that you have created for George Beikl showing his grave in St Mary's graveyard Kensal Green. Why, you may ask?

Well, Georg Weikl was a soldier with the Bavarian 16th Infantry Regiment, 5th Company. His Red Cross records state that he was wounded by a gunshot to the left arm and captured near Montauban on 14th July 1916 but later suffered from a gas gangrene infection and died on 23rd July 1916. Red Cross records confirm that he was buried in Kensal Green in grave number 13 on 27th July 1916 but also add that his name had originally been misreported as being Georg Beckl. He appears in the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge database (VDK - the German equivalent of the Commonwealth war Graves Commission) under the name Georg Beckl and it is therefore nearly impossible for relatives or any others interested in this serviceman to locate his burial place.

I was hoping that you would allow me to copy the photograph that you have taken of his gravestone so that I can forward it to the VDK along with the Red Cross evidence in order to get an amendment, or an annotation, regarding his name on the official database. Georg Weikl appears to have suffered quite a catalogue of errors regarding his death, even including having the wrong year printed on his memorial card so I think it would be fitting if we could at least try to put some of these right now.

William Fenner 1780-1869
I have just realised the entry :

Manufacturer of "Tunbridge Ware", a type of wood craft sold to visitors in the eighteenth century.

Is still there .

This is incorrect. William Fenner of the Tunbridge Ware is Wm. Fenner the Tunbridge Ware Manufacturer 1766-1827 and is buried in Frant cemetery with the rest of his relatives.
Would you be able to correct that first part of the entry. The rest which I submitted is correct.
