"I like wandering about these lonely, waste and ruined places. There dwells among them a spirit of quiet and gentle melancholy more congenial and more akin to my own spirit than full life and gaiety and noise" - Reverend Francis Kilvert, Victorian Diarist (1871).|

Thank you for all the information. Was his ashes buried in the cemetery?
|Peter Holford||RE: Richard Edgar Wood|
Thank you for your reply. Keep up the good work. I must add a few more of my own to the list. I don't know whether you would like any more info about Richard Edgar Wood. He was born in the third quarter of 1902 in Hull. I'm not sure how he ended up in the Isle of Wight - he married a local girl in Ventnor in 1937 at the age of 35. They had two sons - perhaps I've got distant cousin's living nearby!

Forgot to identify which grave!
|Peter Holford||Distant cousin|
While researching my family tree I came across this distant cousin. Born in Hull, he is the great-grandson of Captain James Wood (1793-1840) who is listed in this website. My mother was also born in Hull and Capt James Wood is also her great grandfather. The coincidence is that she also lived and died in the Isle of Wight but 70 years after Richard Edgar! Life can be strange.

Do you happen to remember what was written on the other side of the headstone?
|Laura Majors||Charlotte Skinner|
Thank you so much!!! Our genealogy has always stopped with Charlotte Skinner because we couldn't find any information on her besides her name. You are wonderful, thank you.

Thank you so much for the picture. We have had a nasty winter but today was nice & I went on a cemetery cruise. I found 3 of the many I am looking for but will wait for better weather to photograph. I really appreciate your help. Bev
