Norwood Cemetery Me again! I did just google again and found a West Norwood Cemetery, called just Norwood by some who referred to it, but its burials began only in 1837--too modern for William McGillivary and most of those buried on the Saint James Burial Ground page. That doesn't answer the question about where Saint James Burial Ground is, but it does negate Wikipedia's burial info for McGillivary. Is the Saint James Burial Ground just the Saint James Church Picadilly, whose picture it shows? And if so, why isn't McGillivary among the burials/memorials listed on their web page? He was an important man! (Note that and NOT suggesting that you have entered him in the wrong place. I'm just trying to find the right place for "my" Elilzabeth Cecil Boyle, who is said to be buried in Saint James Church Westminster. The Saint James Church Picadilly web page doesn't list her either.) OK. That's it for tonight. I won't pester you again today. :-)
94086599 William McGillivary Hi, Diane! I've got a question that I have a hard time explaining. I hope you'll bear with me. I'm trying to determined the appropriate cemetery for a person whose biography says she's buried in St. James Church Westminster. When I google that church, I find it is also known as St. James Church Picadilly and see photos of it. These photos are of the same church shown on the page for the Saint James Burial Ground where you have a memorial for William McGillivary. So, perhaps a memorial for my lady physically buried in St. James Church Westminster belongs on the St. James Burial Ground Find a Grave page? (Despite the oddity of burials within a church being referred to as in a burial ground.) However, there's another problem: the church pictured, St. James Church Picadilly, has a website of its own, and it that lists tons of burials and memorials (see http://www.sjp.org.uk/memorials.html), none of which is William McGillivary. To confuse things more, Wikipedia says he's buried in Norwood Cemetery in London! So, I'm more and more confused. The Find a Grave page for the Saint James Burial Ground has no address or map. The earliest memorial was undoubtedly created by the person who created the page, but he appears to be inactive. I figure you placed William McGillivary's memorial there for a reason, so maybe you know something that can help me? If you've read this far, I thank you! I know it's confusing. If I can just figure out where in London the Saint James Burial Ground actually is located, that will help. Is it simply the Saint James Church Picadilly building? And for some reason the person who named the Find a Grave page chose to call it a burial ground instead of a church? Or is there actually somewhere a regular burial ground now called Norwood that used to be called St. James? Or vice-versa? Ack! Can you help? Kendall email@example.com
St Michael & All Angels Hi Diane,I agree ,the duplication causes confusion, I think the problem is that the location is in the title of the earlier entry . If you attempt to get F.A.G to erase "Chalton" from the title I will remove my duplicates and use the earlier site .Thank you for bringing this to my attention Regards Frank
I never found him in the Forest Lawn database. The only indication of his burial is his inclusion in Helen's marker.
I wonder if this is a cenotaph for him?
If you didn't find burial information either it could be that he was cremated. If he was I didn't find confirmation in the Forest Lawn database. By 1990 there were other crematorium's in Omaha so maybe they handled his remains.
I also wanted to let you know that I added the headstone photo for your memorial for Helen Marie Elsasser Allen and I created the memorial for her husband Howard Edward Allen. The couple shared a headstone so Howard also has a photo. The memorials are linked.
The headstone was mostly buried and is not in great shape. It could use some tender loving care.
I would have thought Howard would have already been set up with a memorial but I could not find him anywhere in the database for Forest Lawn or Find A Grave.
Would you like to take ownership of Howard (Find A Grave Memorial# 160208442)?
Beside taking pictures of wargraves, I have now started with my wife a small business in which we are placing dayfresh flowerboucquets on wargraves, memorials, cemeteries from Ypres to the Somme. I have started this business due to the many requests from people around the world.
This service can be found on our website: http://www.wargrave.eu/
In the customer section you will find an example of a commemoration I did last week for a Scottish client in Dunkirk.

It would be great if you could share this with people you know.
