RE: Robert Tate photo request Craig, that's very good of you. I can't get up there very much now, so it would be great if you could do that for me please. I got the grave number from his son's diary - he visited the grave in 1867, and says that there was a stone about 9 inches wide and 1 foot high with the number 1771 on it - I suppose that is long gone now.
Robert Tate photo request Thank you for looking for his grave. Since posting the request I have rung Sunderland Registrars and they gave me the same grave info - but said if I visit, to ring the cemetery supervisor (a Mr Jones at the time)and he would arrange to meet me and escort me to the grave.Thank you again for trying.
