Hi Craig,
Thanks for the quick reply and for looking up more records for me.

I read the ancestry message board you sent me the link to and the Richard Henry Sandoe mentioned isn't my great grandfather as it says he died in 1915 in World War 1.

The Richard Henry Sandoe (who's my great grandfather) died in 1932 in Truro, Cornwall.

So, thanks again for looking for me, i think my best avenue to find more information would be to email Cornwall council and see if he's buried in one of their cemeteries.

Thanks again.

Finding 2 more graves
Hi again Craig,
I'm hoping you can help me again. Thanks to you i've been able to find my grandfathers and his families graves, but now i've started searching for birth and death records for my grandmothers parents.

I've have found their birth records and dates they died, but when i searched on this site i couldn't find their graves. I'm not sure if they were buried in this cemetery, but there's a big chance they were, so if i give you their information, would you mind checking for me please?

My grandfather: Richard Henry Sandoe

Born: March 1876 - Truro, Cornwall

Died: 1932 - Truro, Cornwall.

My great Grandmother: Elizabeth Emily Sandoe
Birth information.

Born: 1879 in Plymouth, Devon, England

Died: 1960 in East Stonehouse, Devon, United Kingdom

If you can find where they're buried, i'll be really grateful.

I don't know why, but after i found Ephraim's record on this site, i searched for it again, but i don't know why i can't find it.

Thanks for your help and i look forward to your reply .

Hi Craig,
Thanks so much for all your help with the information you've found for me concerning where my grandparents are buried. It is much appreciated. I didn't realise that you weren't in the Uk, but in the USA, if i had've known, i wouldn't have asked.

I'll google genealogical group in Plymouth and see if i can find a email address for them so i can contact them.

Thanks again for all your help.

My grandparents grave
Hi again Craig,
I forgot to ask you in my last email if it would be possible for you to email me a picture of my grandparents graves please?

As it's not possible for me to come to Plymouth and see their graves myself, i'd love to see what their tombstones say.

I know i said i'll give me uncle his grandparents graves information, but that will take a long time as i don't even have a or email address for him, so i have no idea when or if i'll ever have any contact with him.

So if you could email me pictures of their gravestones, i'd be so grateful, If however, due to copyright laws you're not able to, would you mind at least telling me what's on each stone.

Thanks in advance for your help again.

My Grandfparents graves
Hi Craig,
Thanks for replying to my messages so quickly and for explaining to me who people were under the Bence surname.

I wasn't sure who Harris Bence was, but his name kept coming up on censuses and emails between my uncle to my sister, but i still didn't know who is was, until now. Thanks for explaining who the other 3 other names were. I wasn't sure who Leah Bence was either

I'm not in contact with my uncle at the moment, but I'm hoping to soon and i will tell him i have the information on where his grandparents are buried, he may want to visit them.

Thanks again for all your help. It's much appreciated.

My Grandfather's grave
Hi Craig,
Thanks for replying to my message and for checking your database for me. When you find Ephraim Bence's gravestone record on the database, can you please look for the name of his wife as i've been told the name on his gravestone is Leah Bence, if this is the case, then this defineately is not my grandfather as he was married to Evelina Sandoe in 1920.

Here's again is my grandfather's details:

Name: Ephraim Bence
Born: 1889 Poland Russia
Died: 1978
Married to: Evelina Sandoe: 1920

One last question, if my grandfather isn't at Gifford Place Cemetery, would it possible for you to try and find out where he's buried because all i was told is he's buried at the Jewish cemetery in Plymouth, but as there's 5, i'm not sure which other cemetery he could be at.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I look forward to your reply.

Ephraim Bence death Date
Hi Craig,
I'm not sure if you'll reply to me, but i preiously send you a message saying the death dad on the grave record for Ephraim Bence was incorrect. I believed the Ephraim Bence that i found on your site was my grandfather, but i now don't think the Ephraim Bence in your cemetery isn't him. I had a feeling that you hadn't done a typo and typed in the wrong of 1928 in year of death instead of 1978.

So i do apologise and the search for which Jewish cemetery in Plymouth my grandfather is buried in continues.

I don't suppose you can help me find his grave for me can you?

My grandfather's birth year
Hi Craig,
My name is Lyn and i live in Melbourne, Australia. Over the last few months I've been researching my family tree and i know that my grandfather Ephraim Bence is buried in the Gifford Place Jewish Cemetery,so i came to the site and typed in his name and year of birth and death and the information was correct apart from the date he died, my grandfather died in 1978,(I have his official death record that says 1978) but the information that was shown was in 1928, i know that there is only one Ephraim Bence in your cemetery and it's my grandfather, so can you please check your record of my grandfather and see what year is written down.

Please email me on after you've checked his record and tell me what you find.

Usually i wouldn't bother to say anything, but if future generations are looking fir Ephraim Bence's death details on this site, they may think it's not him if they see the date 1928 in year of death.

I hope you have a nice weekend and i hope to hear from you at some stage.

Lyn in Melbourne, Australia.

In Fairview Cem.,Pavilion, NY, the correct name for Lyman W. Gage's wife is Lorena A. Smith, not Gloria. Carmen is listed as maintaining this gravesite, would you prefer I contacted her for the correction?

Tks, Pam
