RE: Simon Ward
Hello Milky and thank you for contacting me about ator Simon Ward. Yes he was cremated, but according to his daughter actress Sophie Ward in an article in the London Times, when I wrote is memorial, part of his ashes were to be scattered with the rest being interred at Highgate Cemetery, London. Per the guide lines of Find a Grave, I choose the cemetery as the best source for the listing. Best always,

A tale of two Carols
Dear Keith,

A couple of days ago, I went down to Mortlake, and I found Carol's grave, without too much difficulty. I have added her mum and dad and the two other people who are buried with her; not sure how they are related.

Although I am still not in the best of health, a change of scenery might do me good; so, on Monday, I am off to Wales, birthplace of the Carol in your new avatar. There have been many Carols, and one or two Caroles, in my life. I used to like this one until I found out that she was a Tory, and I liked her even less once I found out that she was a Catholic, and stopped liking her at all when I saw her making an exhibition of herself on Question Time, a few years back. Ah, well.

"Carol's really beautiful, and very good at sums."

RE: Thank you
Thank you for Joe and Joanie's dates. Armed with that information, I should be able to track down Carol, although it is a shame that there is no inscription for her.

I am busy at the moment, but I may be able to make another transpontine expedition at the end of next week, provided that the weather remains like this, and provided that I do not expand so much that I burst.

Iain.

Thank you
Dear Keith,

Thank you for your reply. I am better now, but not 100%, and I get tired very easily. I have also put on a lot of weight, which is rather worrying, as I take plenty of exercise and I do not overeat.

With any luck, I am going to spend the whole of August wandering around Wales, so that should be a change of scenery, if nothing else.

I don't suppose you know the dates of Carol's parents, as well as their names, do you?

I'll write in to tell F.A.G. about Sir Arthur, but may not do this until I recross Offa's Dyke.

Speaking of Arthurs; I had heard of Count Arthur, but never saw the programme, although I did hear an edition of Feedback which seemed to be devoted in its entirety to people who had written in to say that it (the Count, not Feedback) was not at all funny. If it is ever shown again, I shall try to catch an episode, just to make up my own mind.

All the best,

Iain.

Now it's my turn!
Dear Keith,

I had often wondered whereabouts in Mortlake Cemetery Carol White's ashes was buried, and I have just noticed that you had uploaded a photograph of it.

Do you remember in what part of the cemetery her grave is? If not, I'll have to ask at the office, although they may not know the answer because the plot is probably in the names of her parents, whose names and dates I do not know, and Carol may not even be on the register because it is her ashes, not a "proper" burial.

Irrespective of that, I should like to go there and pay my respects to this beautiful and tragic lady.

I went South of the River yesterday; not to the main Mortlake Cemetery, but to the much smaller one near the station, known as Old Mortlake. There I saw Sir Arthur Bliss, whose photographs you took, and I thought I should tell you that he is in the wrong (larger) cemetery. As he is "famous", you won't be able to move him, but you might like to write to the Administrators. If not, I'll do it, but I probably shan't get round to it for a while. I have a huge list of corrections which I must send them someday, but this one seems more important than most.

Finally; I feel I ought to recognise the figure in your avatar, but I can't. At first, I thought it was Harry Worth, but he was much shorter than that. Who is it?

All the best,

Iain.

Gary Moore Memorial
Hello Milky,

Someone have sent us your photo of Gary Moore's gravesite from findagrave.com, as a suggestion for a new memorial page on our site.

Is it possible for us to show your photo on a new site for Gary Moore, on our Danish memorial site: www.gravsted.dk?

We will of course credit you for your photo, in the same way as findgrave.

Kind regards,
Ruth & Henrik

Bob Crow
Hi,

I was wondering if you know where Bob Crow is buried, or is it a secret since he was rather unpopular? I would very much like to add it to his memorial.

Thanks so much!

Sue

RE: Kate Greenaway
Glad to be of assistance!

Unfortunately, I am still feeling a bit rough. It is nothing life-threatening, but it is taking far too long to clear.

Hope you are well,

Iain.

RE: Kate Greenaway
Dear Keith,

I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply. This is due to a combination of my not being able to find the guide book, and the weather (until last week) being so rough, and my not feeling very well.

The guide book has now emerged; the weather is much better; and I am slightly better, if not 100%; so, this afternoon, I went across to Hampstead. I hope that what follows is clear:

Walk as far as the chapel, then turn left, then turn right when, on the left, you see the elaborate tomb of Banister Fletcher. Continue West for about 70 or 80 yards; and, on your left, you should see the small, grey tomb of Joseph Lister. After Lister, the graves are as follows:

Isitt; Quain; Strickland; Rattray; Dale; Norris.

Just behind Norris is the grave of Henry and Elizabeth Pryce. Walk South along this path, keeping Pryce on your right. After nine graves, most, if not all, of which are unmarked, you should see a tree on your left. Kate Greenaway's grave is next to the tree, facing away from you.

That is probably the safest way to get there, as there is a path of sorts, but has the disadvantage that you can't see Kate, on account of her facing in the wrong direction. Alternatively;

If you stand at Quain's grave and look South, you should see the grave of Sir Samuel Wilks. Hack your way through the brambles as far as Wilks, and you should see Kate Greenaway's inscription, a few graves ahead of you. This is more direct, and has the advantage that her name is visible as you approach it, but the ground is most uneven and covered with brambles, and I got quite badly scratched.

Over the next few days, I hope to add most of these names to the website, so it might be an idea to wait until you can see the photographs, then you may have an idea of what to look for.

If that doesn't make any sense, let me know and I'll try to make it clearer.

All the best,

Iain.

RE: Kate Greenaway
Apologies for the delay in getting back to you, Keith.

Somewhere around here, I have a book about Hampstead Cemetery. Unfortunately, the book wasn't in the first place I looked for it.

When it does emerge, I'll write again to tell you exactly where Kate's grave is. I don't suppose you'll be going there until the weather brightens up a bit (although it is rather good to-day) but I'll do this as soon as I can. I am going to be at home all of next week so I might give the house a much-needed clean then.

I suppose you know that there is a plaque to her at 147 Upper Street in Islington, so you can go and look at that while you are waiting!

Back soon,

Iain.
