Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm retired. I've been doing genealogy since about 1991. Like many genealogists I enjoy walking through old cemeteries and wondering about the lives of those who are laid to rest below my feet.

Contact me, VIA THE EDIT TAB on a memorial,

if I have entered info of a friend or loved one and there is an error to be fixed or additions to be made. I welcome a POLITE request for changes, corrections, etc. Again a POLITE request.

PLEASE USE THE TAB on the specific memorial to send or suggest corrections or ask questions. DEMANDS OR RUDENESS WILL BE IGNORED.


Thank you.

There was a tombstone in 1930, when the Adam Holliday Chapter DAR walked the cemetery and recorded it (with a high rate of errors, unfortunately). Whether a readable stone exits today I do not know. There was a local lady who was attempting to photograph that cemetery, but I think she gave up because of so many unreadable and damaged stones.

RE: USN service as well
WOW... I was supposed to be on that ship. Not too many people know about or remember that incident. AZ3 Padget was in my place with the Helo detachment.

In order to find a grave a photo volunteer needs to know the grave ref. This can be obtained from Altrincham Crematorium office email:


Please see FAGs:
NOTE: Please contact the cemetery for plot information prior to making your photo request. Some cemeteries are now charging to look up plot location information, but they will usually provide the information free to family members.
NOTE: Many cemeteries are now asking that a relative of the deceased contact the cemetery to obtain plot, lot and grave location information, as well as inform the cemetery staff that a volunteer will be coming to take the photo of the grave marker. This helps with verifying that the deceased is buried there, makes it easier for the volunteer photographer to find the grave marker, and may help the photo volunteer gain permission to take the photo.

Kind regards,

Mike Berrell
