Hi Alf,
I sent the following report to Find a Grave, so they may contact you:

"I have found an error regarding a cemetery location for a number of war graves probably originally uploaded by International Wargraves.
There are 37 graves under the IWPP account shown as being located in Whitchurch cemetery, Whitchurch, Cardiff, Wales.
I have checked a few of these records and found that in fact the graves are located (and have already been uploaded, with photographs) by contributor 47190722 in Whitchurch cemetery, Whitchurch, Shropshire Unitary Authority, England.
I would have contacted IWPP directly but there is no facility for doing this."

Keep up the good work!

James Cavenagh-Mainwaring
Hello. Thank you for all your efforts in photographing and transcriptions.

Just a minor correction on the year of death for Find A Grave Memorial# 48351492 (James Cavenagh-Mainwaring).

He died in 1938, not 1978.

GRO Reference: 1938 M Quarter in NEWCASTLE-UNDER-LYME Volume 06B Page 108

He was born in 1865.

Thank you!

Kindest regards,
Timna Green (Australia)

Hey Alf
It appears that you posted the photo of my grand father's grave at Fradley. a thousand thanks to you! I have never been able to get there in person
How wonderful to see this online from far off Australia. Just happened to be doing a search!
I'm not sure how this website works but is it someone called SJ Hearn who has gathered the data? If so, he has done a v good job as it is very accurate.

We never forget Wilf, ever
My grandmother Marna Jeane Alexander certainly never passed a day without thinking of him . . she is gone now . . . her ashes are with me and I might bring a few over to Fradley one day

It is astonishing how war affects families and the effect never ends

thank you for your kind heart

Victor Roy J Smith
In the obituary for Roy, you have indicated that his wife Winifred died on the same date and at the same age. I suspect that this may not be correct, and this event is not listed on the freeBMD website.

I see that you have posted his record ... you might be interested in the following, which I found out while researching a grave in Plymyard Cemetery, Wirral.

He was the wireless op of an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk V (P4939) of No. 10 OTU, RAFVR, Abingdon which took off at 01.15 on a night training exercise. It stalled shortly after take off and crashed at Sandleigh Road playing fields, St. Helen Without, Abingdon (Then in Berkshire but now part of Oxfordshire).

See 166167193 Pilot Officer 62294 Leonard Sinclair Bradburn for details of the rest of the crew.

St. Andrews, Church Aston

I saw you posted a photo of St. Andrews at Church Aston in Shropshire, and was wondering if you were available to photograph a few graves?

Thank you!

Hartshill Cemetery WW1 graves
I am preparing a leaflet on the CWGC graves in Hartshill Cemetery and would like to use some of your photographs of headstones to go with biographies. Your photographs are much better than my attempts.

Thank you
