|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.

Hi I am a local history researcher in Leigh-on-Sea Essex - see my website www.leighlives.co.uk. The mother of JOhn Frederick Ginnett and he himself were born in Leigh (Lea on the memorial is an incorrect spelling). You will see I have a page about the family on the website and I would love to have a picture of John Frederick to go with it as he was born here.
The website is not for profit and I would of course give full accreditation. Would it be possible to use the photo.
John Ripsher, of Tottenham fame was a cousin of mine (5 X removed). I write a blog and each Thursday I do a blog post about one of my ancestors. I would like to use the photo of his grave and the photo of him that you submitted to this site. It's a personal blog and I get no payment or reward for writing it. I do it because I like to. Would that be ok?

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

Thank you. I'm sure other members of the family will be interested in this.

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.
