I live in the UK. Please visit my memorial to Stephen Sutton - he was such an inspirational young man, thousands of people (including myself) will never forget him or his bravery in the face of terminal illness. And please donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust in his memory. If you could it would be great if you could also stop by my ex husband's memorial - Alexander Sutherland - who sadly passed away January 2016 from bowel cancer, aged just 47.
Amelia McCudden Hello Sarah, I went into Kingston upon Thames Cemetery this afternoon to try and locate and photograph for you the Grave of the late Amelia McCudden (Grave number: C1953 in Section22), but unfortunately could not locate it. The section is in a very old part of the Cemetery where a lot of the Graves are no longer readable or have returned to nature. If you have any other details which you could let me have which may assist me in locating the Grave, I am quite happy to go back and have another go in locating the Grave for you. I am just sorry that I have been unable to help you on this occasion. Kind Regards Tony
If it's of any consolation, I do know that there are volunteer groups currently going around Johnston performing maintenance and rehab at the historic cemeteries. Often they will look for fragments of stones and try to piece them back together, or partially remake them. I'm not sure of the specifics, but keep a watch for possible photos in the future.
Another good resource to know (if you don't already) is the RIHCC. Here's a link to Andrew's page: http://rihistoriccemeteries.org/newgravedetails.aspx?ID=126907

However, the online records do contain errors. I will look at the film of the burial register at the library.
Photo Request for Alan Clarke, 1945 Regrettably, he is one of a number of people placed in the wrong cemetery when WW2 memorials were created in bulk. He is actually at Grove Park, opposite the Service personnel screen wall if I remember rightly. I have a photograph, but I think I'm supposed to wait until the memorial is moved before uploading it. I have SACCed for the move, and keep you posted of progress.
