Thanks for the information. I have added it to the bio.

I cannot imagine where this "unmarked" grave might be located. There are public roads on two sides of the churchyard with very narrow grass verges, a farm on another side, and a private residence on the other. While the Telegraph article mentioned visiting the area, it gave no indication of whether or not the reporter found the grave.
It is a 20mile round trip to Little Badminton, so I will only visit again if I have good directions and a fighting chance of finding any graves.
I looked at the list of inscriptions that Alf Beard had transcribed. I noted that in some cases, additional information appeared in his lists that were not on the gravestones, while in others, verses had been omitted. I also wondered why he was so selective in the graves that he transcribed as I believe that there are many more that are clearly legible that do not appear on his list. His numbering system does seem to be arbitrary and does not appear to be of much help in locating any of the graves.

Can you or Alf Beard tell me exactly where to look for this grave. I'm afraid that this is another one that is being elusive.

I have uploaded photos for Vere & Diana, but there appear to be some anomalies in the information. Both inscriptions indicate that Vere was the 14th Earl of Westmorland (without a second 'E') rather than a Duke, and it states that he was born on 15th rather than 25th. I will create the other three entries shortly.

Good News. I managed to get in touch with a very helpful lady who is the secretary to the Badminton Estate. She confirmed that the Fanes are indeed buried at Little Badminton and told me exactly where to find the graves. The reason that I could not find them when I first visited the Cemetery was because they have horizontal stones and are located beneath a large lime tree which means that they were covered with sticky sap, moss, and other wind-blown debris. It took some effort, but I have cleaned them up and will upload photos in the next few days. I also found three other members of the Westmorland clan close by, and will add their details and photos as well.

The other church of St Michaels and All Saints is a private church in the grounds of Badminton House owned by the Duke of Beaufort. It is not normally open to the general public.

I have uploaded a photo of the stone. I'm not sure if you're the one who posted the photo request, but I thought I'd let you know.

Thank you for the additional links & information. I have added information (from her obit) to her Find A Grave page and that of her husband
|Lynn J. Gauthier||Margaret Forgan # 157802512|
Thank you for your SACs' for her memorial page.
However, her maiden name IS "Meeker" not "Forgan" as you suggested, so I have declined that SAC. See info. & sources I added to her bio page.
Could you provide me with a source for her death place ? - the only mention of death is SSDI but that is not proof of death place only last residence & where the SSN was issued. So I am leaving her death place as "United States" for now but manually changing her birth place to Chicago.
|DE Sundeen||Jane Esther "Jennie" Morgan Thomas|
Hi hi, Thank you again for all your lovely Edits. However, your Edit for Jane "Jennie" Thomas gave Morgan as her maiden name. My research says it should be Madigan.
Best wishes and Bless you for all your work.
